IXO Huiles Berliet 'Transporter'

IXO have released this model, which looks like it could possibly be a racing transporter, but probably isn't. Does anyone know the background to this one ?

Yep, it's a workshop on wheels for the TdF.

I like it no matter what is was used for. Well, maybe not if they strangled kittens in it but short of that....
