Ford Transit Sapphire Special Edition

This year Ford Transit van turns 45.

I know it’s not that big of an event, specially as we are talking about a commercial van! but you should realize this is no ordinary van. The Transit got a special character.

As the best selling van in Britain, the Transit owes its popularity not only to its practicality, functionality and economy, but mostly to the fact that years ago 90 percent of bank robberies in UK were involved one of this vans as the getaway car! That makes it specially cool.


Now to celebrate the Transit’s 45th birthday, Ford UK released a special edition of the car called the Sapphire, which is the second anniversary model after the “Hallmark” of 2005.
