Ford Transit SportVan news — Armchair van - 2007

Read more on:

Transit van modifications are usually limited to a
selection of deeply witty slogans scratched in the dirt on the rear doors, with
a selection of choice dents for good measure.

But we’ve found the Transit that takes White Van Man mods to
a new level.

Unveiled at the Commercial Vehicle Show this week (if you
weren’t there, why not?), the Transit SportVan was introduced to the world by
TG’s good friend Sabine Schmidtz - she who terrified Richard all the way round
the ‘Ring.

Limited to a production run of just 500, the SportVan is
aimed at those who want to make a ‘bold statement’ with their van.

We can’t argue with that. With a custom paintjob, bonnet
stripes a la Fiesta ST, twin exhausts and full bodykit, the
SportVan looks every inch the race-honed repo van.

There’s no upgrade in performance, though, because the short
wheelbase SportVan retains the standard 128bhp TDCi Duratorq engine.

No matter: it’s still cool… in a sort of porno-stash chic
fashion. You’ll be seeing SportVans with ‘I wish my wife was this sporting’
scrawled across their panels from June this year.
