|Ford Supervan 3|
Show regulars, the Ford Heritage Collection, will be bringing along a selection of its stunning vehicles, including an Escort Cosworth, Focus MkII RS, Ford GT supercar and Sierra Sapphire Cosworth 4x4.
Also on display will be the Ford Supervan 3. Built on a Ford C100 race car chassis and originally powered by a mid-mounted Ford-Cosworth 650bhp ‘HB’ F1 engine, Supervan 3 first saw the light of day in 1995 when it was displayed at the motor show in Birmingham. Its top speed is estimated at around 150mph, with acceleration that would not disgrace many sports supercars.
The Hendy Ford dealership will also be present, displaying a variety of vehicles from its new Ford range.
On the day, a number of vehicles from the whole Ford gathering will be chosen to join a Simply Ford cavalcade around the attraction, and one of these selected cars will be the lucky winner of the People’s Choice Award and a Beaulieu Trophy.As well as being a great opportunity to view hundreds of Ford vehicles and meet up with other like-minded enthusiasts, visitors to the event can also browse a number of trade stands selling Ford-related parts and accessories.

Four years ago Simply Ford was the first ever Simply rally to take place at the Beaulieu attraction and proved to be incredibly popular. Now, four years on, it is set to be as successful as ever and is part of the growing calendar of Simply events, which has rapidly expanded to include a wide variety of themes covering many makes and models. The latest additions to the Simply rallies for 2013 are Simply Porsche on 23rd June, Simply Alfa Romeo on 30th June, Simply Vauxhall on 28th July and Simply Land Rover on 11th August.
