Ford Launches Limited Edition Transit SportVan in White

In what could be described as the "white van man's" ultimate drive, Ford UK has launched a special edition version of its Transit SportVan in white with Le Mans-style blue bonnet stripes that will be produced in a limited run of just 80 units. In par with the classic Transit SportVan livery of Performance Blue with white stripes that is currently sold out, the white SportVan is spec'd up with twin exhausts, 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in low profile 235/45 tyres, front and rear lower spoilers, side skirts and extended wheel arches.

The model is based on the short wheelbase Transit with front wheel drive and is powered by a 140 HP 2.2-litre TDCi diesel engine that is linked to a six-speed manual gearbox.

The Transit SportVan's interior features include velour trim, air conditioning, six CD-player with remote 'steering-column'-mounted controls, cruise control, power windows, power and heated mirrors, leather steering wheel, tinted glass, leather gearshift knob and a perimeter alarm.

On-the-road prices have been set at £22,030. Aside from the new white finish, two other options remain available for the SportVan, Panther Black with silver stripes, and Sea Grey with silver stripes.
