As an ex hooligan racer more used to Injected GSXR1100 Suzuki’s, and tire smoking raw power, the of a van did not really appeal much. But as I needed something that I get about in I had little choice. Ok a van

So the search started, and after a lot of and pricing stuff up, I ordered to play with.

2.8 litre angle V6 with 5 speed gearbox with »fuzzy» control, ABS braking on big vented brakes on all 4 wheels, speed power steering, 8 seats! 5 and a wheelchair) 235 low profile tyres on 17 x 9J alloy wheels, air conditioning heating control system for and rear), central locking, windows, tinted glass, cruise control system, fitment imobilizer/alarm/remote control, Bit of a limo really! Smooth (well it whistles when you rev lovely VR6 motor), but still

for an easy and comfortable 120mph Not a big bikes 170mph performance but pretty damned good for a And it bloody should be for Ј26,000 usual additions!

The engine is linked to a Dynamic Programmed thinking automatic that examines how each is using the car and adapts to their needs for superior performance of

The VR6’s Dynamic Shift (DSP) gearbox has five shift programs loaded its memory.

These range from a economical program, which up early and down late, engine speed and fuel to a minimum, to a sport program holds onto gears high rev bands and down as the Caravelle’s speed reduces, so it is always ready to respond maximum power.

On top of this I had to a Ricon hydraulic / electric lift, and an electronic rotating six way seat fitted so that I can from my wheelchair to my drivers Add another Ј5,000 to the bill! being disabled is working out expensive! And it holds 80 Quid’s of Super unleaded!!

Still better this being stuck at home. it goes well and is easier to than my old Granada Ghia X. cool for a van all in all.

The 17 inch were fitted about two after I got it, it was crying out for them! this van is not available to the very who need it as it is not on any of the current Motability Just a lot of small universal trolleys that I can’t apart! (Motability is a UK scheme to get disabled people mobile by cars at an ‘advantageous’ rate)
