Sir Geoff Hurst is the MAN

Sir Geoff Hurst and MAN1966 World Cup winner Sir Geoff Hurst has approved a new limited-edition MAN TGX truck as the German-owned firm helps celebrate 50 years of England’s only major football triumph.

The special MAN TGX tractor unit will be limited to 66 examples, all wearing 66 registration plates (which go live on September 1): unique features include a special door badge and 66-logo dashboard mat, plus a framed replica 1966 England football shirt signed by sir Geoff.

MAN suggests it will equip all trucks with variations of the ’66 TGX’ registration plate.

The hat-trick star in England’s 4-2 World Cup final victory will also attend a handover ceremony at Wembley in September: all 66 buyers of the MAN trucks will be invited to attend, before driving away in their new vehicles.

Simon Elliott is a football fan and also MD of MAN UK. “Our entire business, both here in the UK and in Germany has total respect for him as a player and a footballing ambassador, and we just couldn’t miss the chance to recognise this landmark and the 66 plate.”
