Davanti, Sterling Automotive to unveil Vantoura 4-Seasons tyre at CV Show
Davanti Tyres and automotive design house Sterling Automotive Design will mark their Commercial Vehicle Show debut on its return this year (Stand 5D95, Birmingham NEC, 31 August – 2 September) with the unveiling of Davanti’s new all-season van tyre. The Vantoura 4-Seasons will join Davanti’s Protoura Sport, which has sizes suitable for van conversions, the DX440 van tyre, and Terratoura A/T tyre for commercial pickups. It is the first time Davanti will exhibit its entire commercial vehicle tyre range together.
Davanti will be joined by British automotive designers Sterling Automotive. For the last three years Sterling Automotive has collaborated with Davanti, fitting the British-engineered tyres to their stylish vehicle modifications. Sterling will showcase its light commercial van modifications at the show. They aim to add “luxury, comfort and an element of uniquely British cool to any van.”
Davanti Vantoura 4-Seasons
Davanti Tyres says the CV Show comes at the perfect time to present the Vantoura 4-Seasons. One of Davanti’s new range of next-generation tyres, Vantoura offers enhanced wet and cold weather performance to Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake standard. This shows the tyre can handle extreme winter conditions and allows vans that need to drive in continental Europe to remain road-legal without a seasonal tyre change.
“Vantoura is perfect for all van drivers,” said Sean Maddocks, Davanti sales director for the UK and Ireland. “It removes the hassle of changing tyres seasonally without compromising on safety and handling.
“For British van drivers who don’t legally have to change their tyres for winter, it offers improved winter and wet weather control over using a pure summer tyre. When your van is your livelihood, staying safe on the road is critical – Vantoura 4-Seasons is designed to keep you moving no matter what.
“Commercial applications can be incredibly versatile, which is why in addition to the Vantoura we are showcasing our existing DX440 – which is OE on the LEVC VN5 electric van – Protoura Sport, which is suitable for van conversions with 20-inch plus wheel sizes and Terratoura A/T, for commercial pickups that absolutely need to conquer any terrain.”
The Vantoura 4-Seasons is initially available in 11 common 15” and 16” van fitments.
Sterling Automotive custom Ford Transit
Blackburn-based Sterling will display its custom Ford Transit at the show, highlighting their bespoke interior styling and added comfort plus their attention-grabbing exterior bodywork designs.
Davanti tyres are fitted across Sterling’s range of re-imagined premium cars and vans and Sterling managing director Carl Williamson said rooting their vehicle modifications in British creativity and expertise was their central philosophy.
“Using the latest in design cues and 3D printing technology, Sterling Automotive can give any vehicle, including vans, a look that is unique yet grounded in a distinctly British sense of style,” he said.
“Whether you are a sole trader, a small business owner or a company running a fleet, your vans don’t have to be boring. Creating a unique look can help establish your brand in a customer’s mind.
“Creating a stunning and comfortable interior meanwhile makes getting from job to job a more pleasant experience. Together Sterling and Davanti offer van drivers a more satisfying driving experience.”
