Hyundai i800 gets a high top

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

IN­DE­PEN­DENT cam­per van builder Wellhouse Leisure has added a high-top ver­sion to its award-winning con­ver­sion of the Hyundai i800 MPV – which has an el­e­vat­ing roof. The taller roof gives more stor­age and per­ma­nent higher head room. Prices start at £37,500 with au­to­matic gears – also avail­able on the stan­dard body. Both ver­sions now have the lat­est Euro 5 diesel en­gine. The Wellhouse Hyundai won the 2011 Mo­tor­car­a­van of the Year award for the com­pany, which is at She­p­ley, Hud­der­s­field. Wellhouse’s owner, David El­liott is over­whelmed with its suc­cess. Since its start in 2002, it has sold more than 1,000 cam­per vans. Ford’s cen­te­nary tour of Bri­tain had an un­usual halt in the Scot­tish High­lands this week. A lo­cal writer given the wheel of a Boss Mus­tang dropped in on a BMW dealer in In­ver­ness who was in­ter­ested in see­ing the mus­cle car. He left it idling at the door and re­turned to find it bur­bling hap­pily away to it­self, door closed – and locked. It took 60 min­utes to open the car.
