The Vaillante Commando is a production car designed for rough terrain. A popular design, this type has seen a lot of use in the Vaillant family. The Vaillante Rush shares some design elements with this model, as does a later model, the Vaillante Cevert. The first iteration of this model, the Commando GTC, is powered by a Ford powertrain; testing of this engine was done under the guise of a Ford GT40 Mk. IV body.
The Commando eventually is surpassed by the Commando C, although this model is a lot less popular than the original design.
