Back in the Summer we sent the Stig's (slightly rounder) van driving cousin - James Dempsey from the TCH Business Sales team at Derby - to Donington Park, armed with a range-topping Ford Custom Sport Van. We also sent Chris Dale from the CV team along for the ride, in a standard 1.0 Litre Ford Fiesta to find out which would come out tops.
With the Transit Custom Sport Van’s 2.2-litre Duratorq diesel engine, delivering 155 PS and 385 Nm of torque, we knew the lads were in for a fun day but watch the short video below to see what happened on the track...
The Ford Transit Custom Sport Van provides UK businesses and CV-drivers with an eye-catching vehicle that makes a bold statement on the road, but one that still delivers full Transit functionality and capability, that owners have come to expect.
The Transit Custom Sport follows in the successful line of Sport Vans, that have developed a following among Transit drivers since being introduced back in 2007.
Including a muscular body kit and fully colour-coded exterior, with body-colour bumpers, side mirrors, door handles and body-side mouldings, the bold appearance of the Transit Custom Sport is finished off with stylish 18-inch alloy wheels on low-profile 235/50 tyres, and the signature twin bonnet stripes in a contrasting colour.
The exclusive sporting style also includes partial leather trim combining Pewter seat fabric with charcoal black leather bolsters, and the latest interior technologies such as the Ford SYNC voice-activated, in-car connectivity package and a DAB audio system.
The Transit Custom Sport Vans are also equipped with the most powerful version of the Transit 2.2-litre Duratorq diesel engine, delivering 155 PS and 385 Nm of torque. All vehicles also feature a short-wheelbase van bodystyle, with a 2.9-tonne gross vehicle weight.
The new Transit Custom Sport, along with the rest of the next generation of Ford commercial vehicles, is available to order at the new TC Harrison Transit Centres at Derby and Peterborough. The TCH Transit Centres manage all commercial service, maintenance and warranty work, along with dedicated CV sales teams who can offer advice on all aspects of buying a new van.
