Details: The Mk8 Ford Transit (also known as the fifth generation) was launched at the beginning of 2013, and is built in Turkey in rear-wheel drive format only (smaller, front wheel-drive vans are now badged as Transit Customs). The last Mk7 Transit was built at Southampton in mid-2013, ending the production of Ford vehicles in the UK. Although the Mk8 soon became a common sight on UK roads, it was not until early 2015 that the first examples were reported as service vehicles. Among these was 7947F, caught heading down Bollo Lane in Acton on 16th February 2015. The new Transit is available with two wheelbases, three body lengths, and two heights. 7947F is a long wheelbase, high-roof example, and also had a light-bar and rear chevrons. Note how the large side moulding covers most of the area of the blue skirt. It also appears to be more slab-sided than the Mk7, resulting in the top of the van being almost as wide as the bottom.
