Based on a short-wheelbase front-wheel drive 260 finished in — yes, you’ve guessed it — white, the Big Blue Oval’s latest offering is powered by a 140hp 2.2-litre diesel married to a six-speed gearbox. It comes complete with Le Mans-style blue bonnet stripes, twin exhausts, snowflake pattern 18ins alloy wheels shod with low-profile 235/45 tyres, front and rear lower spoilers, side skirts and extended wheelarches.

Internal goodies include air-conditioning and a six-CD player with steering column-mounted remote controls. Only 80 are being produced and the price is £22,030.
