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.”
