Virgin Media unveils movie-themed vans


Virgin Media has raised the curtain on a fleet of movie-themed ‘Super-vans’, set to appear across the UK as the company delivers Virgin Media’s range of next-generation digital services. 

The new vans are inspired by some of the best-loved vehicles from the big screen including Thunderbird 2 – International Rescue’s famous aircraft piloted by Virgil Tracy and Ecto 1 – the spook-fighting Cadillac made famous in Ghostbusters.

All the new vans have been specially designed and commissioned by Virgin Media for its top performing engineers.

The film-tastic fleet also features the Jurassic Park jeep, the Batmobile, speedy Lightning McQueen from Cars and Optimus Prime, the leader of the Autobots in Transformers.

The vans will now travel the length and breadth of the country, delivering Virgin Media’s digital services to British homes as well as to businesses with Virgin Media Business. The latest additions to the fleet join the inaugural Super-vans launched last year which included General Lee, the Dukes of Hazzard modified Dodge Charger and Disney favourite Herbie.

Maurice Daw, executive director of access at Virgin Media, said: “We are really excited about the latest additions to our super-fleet, we know how proud our engineers are when they’re driving around in these bespoke vans. Although they won’t be fighting ghosts or worrying about avoiding any T-Rex’s we are confident they will make our customers smile!”
