Ford heads to CarFest in style

Ford heads to CarFest in style

Ford is all set to head to CarFest South this month with its Cosworth-powered Transit Supervan 3, in order to continue the celebrations of its star commercial vehicle's 50th birthday.

Ford's newest Transit  a 2015 Custom Sport Van painted gold to mark the half century  will join the convoy behind the 1994 Super Van, which is an enduring favourite from Ford's heritage collection, capable of 150mph thanks to its 295 horsepower supercharged Ford Cosworth Pro Sports 3000 engine.

Another 50-year-old icon will lead the vans on their adventure. Arriving in the UK with right-hand drive this year for the first time in the American muscle car's history, a cabriolet Mustang with a 316bhp EcoBoost engine will head the Ford parade.

Transit Owners Club members will also make an appearance at Hampshire's Laverstoke Farm, the CarFest South venue from August 28 to 30, with a display of significant vans to mark the anniversary of the start of Transit production in August 1965.

As well as seeing vans, old and new, families at the festival will spot Ford's latest 'MAX' family of stylish, practical and dynamic multi-purpose vehicles.
The new Ford C-Max, S-Max and Galaxy range, including three seven-seat models, will hit dealerships later this summer.

Alongside the existing innovative Ford B-Max, the new C-Max, S-Max and Galaxy offer an unparalleled breadth of family multi-purpose vehicles  all with SYNC connectivity, turbo-charged petrol and diesel engines, including all-wheel-drive versions of new S-Max and Galaxy.

Lisa Brankin, marketing director at Ford Britain, said: "Our new 'MAX' models and Galaxy are eye-catching family movers, showing off new design and technology features guaranteed to be a big hit with UK families."

During CarFest North at Oulton Park earlier this month, almost £2,500 was raised by Ford's precision driving team for the Children in Need charity.
