ISUZU, iconic man­u­fac­turer of Ja­pan’s first mo­tor ve­hi­cle and North­ern Ire­land’s num­ber one best sell­ing pick-up, cel­e­brate their cen­te­nary this week and have a num­ber of spe­cial of­fers to mark their first cen­tury of pro­duc­tion.

Head­line news is the launch of the most ex­clu­sive and most ex­pen­sive pick-up in the UK — the D-max Cen­tu­rion Lim­ited Edi­tion. One hun­dred have been built, and each North­ern Ire­land dealer only has one apiece to sell.

For those who wish to drive the best of the best, this new range top­per comes re­splen­dent in a unique colour Fjord Blue. Each bears its own LE num­ber plaque and comes in Isuzu’s ex­cel­lent five speed au­to­matic as stan­dard.

In­stant im­pact is guar­an­teed. Equipped with a stylish and strik­ing new Al­pha Sports ton­neau cover with re­mote tail­gate lock­ing, tail­gate damper and bed rug, dis­creet spoiler kit, spats front and rear, new Pirelli-shod 19in Hur­ri­cane al­loys (the spare even gets its own pro­tec­tive bag), stain­less steel side­steps, LED fog lamps, roof bars and tinted win­dows, this pick-up is a real head turner.

Inside, the five star treat­ment con­tin­ues. The Cen­tu­rion has a lux­u­ri­ous, be­spoke leather in­te­rior that would be at home in the finest lim­ou­sines (even the cen­tre arm­rest and steer­ing wheel are hide­bound), con­trast stitch­ing, il­lu­mi­nated front and rear door en­try guards, the lat­est Alpine In Car En­ter­tain­ment sys­tem, boast­ing ac­tive sub­woofers and a speaker up­grade com­plete with two head­phone sets for the rear en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem for your mini VIPS.

Cli­mate con­trol, satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion, re­verse cam­era, Blue­tooth hands­free and all the usual Isuzu D-max re­fine­ments are stan­dard, as is Isuzu’s ex­cel­lent 125,000 mile/five-year war­ranty. Even the car­pet mats are be­spoke.

This is motoring ex­clu­siv­ity at its finest, and will ap­peal to the cus­tomer who never wants to park next to any­thing re­motely sim­i­lar. At just £30,995 CVOTR, there is no ques­tion that 4WD con­nois­seurs will be flock­ing to their lo­cal Isuzu spe­cial­ists to secure their Cen­tu­rion early.

De­liv­er­ies ar­rive in North­ern Ire­land dur­ing May. This is another Isuzu well worth the wait and, given the sump­tu­ous spec­i­fi­ca­tion and D-max’s class-lead­ing 3.5 tonne tow­ing, it’s go­ing to shame many more pricey and less ca­pa­ble 4WD’S in the mar­ket.

Show­room vis­i­tors on this spe­cial birth­day week will be able to or­der a brand new Utah on con­tract hire for a “this week only” price of just £199 a month; 100 lucky pur­chasers this week will also win £750 of free ac­ces­sories to personalise their D-max.

Re­tail buy­ers can also opt for Isuzu’s ex­cel­lent ser­vice con­tract, which for­ward-pur­chases and in­fla­tion-proofs the first three ser­vices for just £499+Vat — a sub­stan­tial sav­ing for what could be up to six years of motoring, de­pend­ing on an­nual mileage.

It’s not hard to see why Isuzu lead the pick-up sales sec­tor in North­ern Ire­land, and they don’t look likely to give that po­si­tion up any time soon.

To see more, visit or drop into your lo­cal spe­cial­ist dealer and give them your best birth­day wishes — dealer ad­dresses on the web­site — it’s not ev­ery day Isuzu is 100 years young

Only 100 of the D-max Cen­tu­rion Lim­ited Edi­tion, with unique Fjord Blue paint fin­ish, have been built
