BRENTWOOD, Essex, 12 October, 2010 – With the Ford Transit reaching its 45th year as Britain's best selling van, Ford is releasing 100 special edition Transit SportVan models in distinctive red livery.

The Ford Transit SportVan was first created in 2006 for customers wanting to make a bold statement with their commercial vehicle. All previous models are sold out: Performance Blue with white stripes (500), Sea Grey with silver stripes (80), Panther Black with silver stripes (500), Frozen White with blue stripes (80) and Ink Blue with silver stripes (150).



Ford of Britain's marketing director, Mark Simpson, said: "We know that 'white van man' is image conscious both personally and for his business. The SportVan is a real head-turner as well as a reliable workhorse and that's why they sell out so fast."

The Transit SportVan is based on the popular 260, short wheelbase model with front wheel drive, the 140PS 2.2-litre TDCi diesel engine and a six-speed transmission. The red SportVan will be the first medium van to come with DAB radio as standard.

The exterior features Colorado Red paintwork, Le Mans-style white bonnet stripes, twin exhausts, 18in graphite colour alloy wheels, low profile 235/45 tyres, front and rear lower spoilers, side skirts and extended wheel arches. Standard safety features include ABS, ESP and driver and passenger airbags.

Inside the cab: velour trim, air conditioning, six CD-player with remote steering-column-mounted controls, cruise control, power windows, powered and heated mirrors, leather steering wheel, tinted glass, leather gearshift knob and a perimeter alarm are also standard.

Power deadlocks, rain-sensing wipers, auto headlights, front fog lights and a load area protection kit similarly come on every SportVan. Optional are leather seats, Satellite Navigation FX system with 5in colour screen, LED cargo lights in rear and LED daytime running lights.
