It may not be the quickest vehicle on the road – but that didn’t stop the crowds at the Goodwood Festival of Speed admiring the handiwork of a Huddersfield campervan conversion firm.
Wellhouse Leisure’s Bianco special edition Ford Terrier campervan featured on the Ford stand at the famous meet.
The Bianco is one of four new special editions of the new Wellhouse Ford Terrier – the first UK campervan conversion based on the new Ford Transit kombi Custom or Tourneo Custom, which has already been voted Campervan of the Year 2014 and shortlisted for The Motorhome of the Year title by experts from Which Motorhome and Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly.
The Rosso, Bianco, Nero and Argento special editions are red, white, black and silver respectively, featuring colour-coded elevating roof, bumpers and side mouldings, plus sporty 18-inch alloy wheels.
The Bianco’s interior is distinguished by matching white furniture and black leather upholstery with co-ordinating white stitching and panel inserts. Its higher standard specification also includes an upgrade to the more powerful 155 PS turbodiesel engine, an awning and reversing camera.
A star feature of this conversion is the sliding, three-person rear seat which can be moved forward to accommodate more luggage or equipment while travelling, as well as bringing rear passengers closer to the driver, but also slides back to provide maximum living space while camping.
David Elliott, managing director of Shepley-based Wellhouse Leisure, said: “We were delighted and honoured that Ford invited us to reveal our new Bianco special edition on its high profile stand at the prestigious Goodwood Festival of Speed.
“With its twin bonnet stripes, black and chrome alloy wheels, black roof and white bodywork, our campervan looked really awesome alongside all the other sporty models on the Ford stand and was definitely the coolest-looking leisure vehicle at Goodwood.”
