Now there is a better equipped and wider range of six-wheel New Look Relay car transporters available, thanks to the latest co-operation between Citroen and Rohill Bodies Ltd, Andover, one of the UK’s leading car transporter manufacturers.
The latest Citroen move has resulted in a very competitively priced and expanded range of 3.5 tonne gvw Relay Rohill car transporters, which now includes a choice of models powered by 2.0HDi 86hp, 2.2HDi 104hp and 2.8HDi 127hp engines. Recommended retail prices for the New Look Relay Rohill car transporter range start at only £14,995 + VAT and delivery for the 2.0HDi powered model. Models powered by the 2.2HDi engine are priced from £15,495 + VAT + delivery and versions with the 2.8HDi engine are priced from £15,995 + VAT + delivery.
New Look Relay Rohill car transporters offer the benefits of low-loading height – and can thus handle vehicles ranging from low-slung sports cars through to saloons/hatchbacks, MPVs and small vans. In 2.0HDi powered format the New Look Relay Rohill car transporter has a payload of over 1500kg – and all models have a gross train weight capability 5,500kg, allowing an additional car to be carried on a trailer.
Other New Look Relay Rohill car transporter improvements include revised rear suspension torsion bar settings to improve unladen ride. Also a full additional lighting package including rear combination lights, loading lighting and an amber beacon, all carried on a cab-height crash protection/light frame at the front of the body, is included as part of the standard specification. A deluxe set of tie-down straps and a pair of longer (8ft), lightweight aluminium loading ramps are also now included as standard equipment.
To produce the New Look Relay car transporter Rohill replaces the standard chassis with its own design, fully galvanised, low-height chassis structure. This incorporates twin rear axles and carries a lightweight, 4.6m long beavertail body.
The vehicle’s alloy body also includes a compartment under the floor in the rear to carry the twin loading ramps and a side locker for tie-down straps and other equipment. Other notable body features include high tensile alloy floor planking, front end bump stops and eight recessed tie-down rings.
Options available for the New Look Relay Rohill car transporter include electric winches, remote control operation of the electric winch, additional load restraint rings and rear wheel trims.
Brian Roskell, Citroen’s commercial vehicle operations manager, comments, "The previous Relay Rohill car transporter proved to be the competitively priced solution for many car dealers, leasing companies and vehicle traders. The New Look Relay Rohill car transporter adds the benefits of even better specification, wider power choice, while retaining the old model’s exceptionally competitive pricing."Published 21 November 2002
