If you’re in the running to become Britain’s Next Top Model, you have a reputation and an image to maintain, and driving around in any-old vehicle simply isn’t going to ‘cut it’. When you’re en route to the finest catwalks, you need to be seen in the finest cars.
That’s why the makers of the latest series of Britain’s Next Top Model have enlisted the help of a fleet of Caravelle Generation Six models to transport the 12 contestants and four judges to their various challenges.
The three Caravelle Generation Six models, which are all seven-seat two-tone red and white 2.0-litre TDI 150 PS models, will be busy travelling in London traffic as well as cruising on longer trips.
They are all fitted with air conditioning to keep the aspiring models cool, a satellite navigation system to make sure they don't lose their way and parking sensors and privacy glass because they don’t want prying eyes or cameras peering through the glass. They also all have adaptive cruise control with front assist to ensure relaxing longer distance journeys... however stressful the challenges become.
David Cheesman, series producer of Britain’s Next Top Model, commented: ‘We’re delighted to have the Caravelles for the show. They have plenty of space, they’re comfortable, and are equipped with all the latest in-car technology. They look great too in striking two-tone paint: we expect our aspiring models to turn heads, so they deserve to travel in head-turning style.’
The new series premiered on 16 March, and is broadcast at 9pm every Thursday exclusively on Lifetime TV (Virgin 208 / BT and TalkTalk 329 / SKY 156). For more details, go to www.bntm.co.uk.
