Transit SportVan

Ford released a new limited edition Transit SportVan in Colorado Red.  Not sure if any of you guys will like this, and frankly I don’t care.  I think this thing is sexay as hell.

LeMans-style hood stripes complete the front end.  Along with all the little skirt enhancements and LED strips.

This is a FWD beast that is based on the popular 260 model, which is a shorter wheel-base, powered by a 140-hp turbo-diesel engine, yummay!  That doesn’t sound like much, but it apparently does the trick.  Don’t forget the six-speed manual transmission that will be standard.  I can dig that, yes I can.

Some of the standard features on this model.

  • Colorado Red paintwork with white bonnet stripes
  • 18in graphite colour alloy wheels, twin exhaust pipes and spoilers
  • Powered by a 140PS TDCi Duratorq engine
  • First medium van with DAB radio as standard
  • A limited edition of 100
  • On sale end of October at £22,630
  • Apparently the Transit SportVan special editions sell out in like 37.48 seconds, not too shabby.  And in case anyone was wondering, like it is even a question, we here in the States will never see such a sexy beast on our shores.

    It looks good and hauls shit, I like where this is going.

    Hey, it’s a van.  The absurdly stark interior comes with the territory.

    Only 100 of the SprtVans will be built in this configuration and we will never see a single one.  Don’t you just love that.  I know I sure do!
