VW Caravelle on The Apprentice

You’re hired: how The Apprentice candidates hit the road

VW Caravelle on The Apprentice

The BBC’s The Apprentice returns to our screens this week, with Lord Sugar’s latest batch of supposedly business-savvy hopefuls gunning for his £250,000 investment and the opportunity to work alongside him.

Who’s the real star of the show, though? Not Lord Sugar, not his aides Baroness Karren Brady and Claude Littner  not even the Rolls-Royce Ghost that collects the series winner.

Rather, it’s the fleet of Volkswagen Caravelle Executives being used to ferry the candidates (usually in a hurry) from one location to the next. Expect bickering, shouting and tears in the back, and a quiet, calm chauffeur in the front. 

Look out for the Caravelles tonight (3 October) at 9pm on BBC1.
