The Ultimate Family Wagon: George North’s Pure Grey 4Motion Volkswagen Transporter T6.1
We’ve got a treat for you today as we showcase the stunning factory-built 4Motion Volkswagen Transporter T6.1, customized and supplied by NWCC. This beauty is not your ordinary van – it’s been transformed into the ultimate family wagon, designed with style, versatility, and adventure in mind.
Let’s start with the exterior, where NWCC has added some incredible factory options to make this Transporter stand out from the crowd. Renowned for their expertise, NWCC collaborated with Urban Automotive to fit 20″ alloys wrapped in Falken tyres, giving the van a sleek and sporty look. To enhance the ride quality, EiBach adjustable springs were installed, ensuring a smooth and comfortable journey wherever the road takes you.
But the customization doesn’t stop there. George North, the passionate owner of this beauty and the “best looking Welsh player on the field,” wanted a vehicle that could accommodate his wife and two young lads in style, while also catering to their outdoor activities. To achieve this, NWCC partnered with some top brands in the industry.
ABT, a renowned name in the automotive world, added a front 3-piece spoiler to enhance the aerodynamics and give the van a more aggressive stance. Leighton Vans joined forces to provide a rear spoiler and side bars, completing the sporty and rugged look.
Now, let’s step inside and see the magic that NWCC and the team have created. The NewWave team truly shines when it comes to interior customization. They’ve used genuine automotive-grade Alcantara on the front-to-back headliner panels, A-pillars, and B-pillars, ensuring a luxurious and sophisticated feel.
No detail was too small to be overlooked. The interior lighting has been fully customized, with the halo interior lighting fully dimmable for those late-night travels, while downlights illuminate the interior space. The Trunkliner from AS-TRIM, ensures that the cargo area is fully lined, while Dodo sound kill upgrades are tucked away neatly behind the birch panels, delivering exceptional soundproofing.
The comfort and convenience of all passengers were also taken into consideration. USB power points have been installed for the boys in the back, ensuring they stay connected and entertained. The front seats have been upgraded with GTI Sport-foams, providing the perfect balance of support and comfort. And to add a touch of luxury, all five seats have been upgraded with Nappa leather, featuring a unique centre design.
To complete the transformation, the vehicle received a full detail from Prestige Valets, ensuring that it was in pristine condition for George’s arrival from camp. At NewWave, we consider it an honour to work with Welsh rugby professionals like the North Family, who are dedicated to their craft. We are honoured that they chose to work with us, and we extend a huge thanks to them.
We hope to have the opportunity to work with the North Family again in the future. Until then, happy travels, George, and enjoy your new and improved family wagon.
