The Ford Transit Custom Sport can be a little expensive, right? But there’s no need to let that stop you from getting a sporty, stylish, head-turning Transit Custom. Here at Swiss Vans, we’re delighted to offer our fantastic Ford Transit Custom Hornet. It’s a sportier version of our famous and much-loved WASP modification, and it’s perfect for anyone wanting a slightly edgier look.
Our Hornet kit is great whether you choose a panel van or DCiV (Double Cab in Van) model for your Transit Custom. And just in case you were wondering about the difference between the two: the panel van allows to you carry up to 6.8m3 of cargo, even more if you go for the high roof option. The DCiV is an excellent choice for those who need to carry people and stuff; it seats up to six but still has a cargo area of 4.4m3 in the back.
We can offer the Transit Custom Hornet with either a 130hp or 170hp 2.0-litre TDCi EcoBlue turbodiesel engine, and you can choose between a manual or an automatic transmission. We’re happy to work with you to find the van that best suits your needs, and as we order our stock vans 6-9 months in advance and always have a wide range available, you can get your Transit Custom Hornet really fast.
From only £299 per month, you can have your Ford Transit Custom with these super extras:
18” alloy wheels
Front Hornet splitter
Rear skirt apron with a mock exhaust

Ford have a history of making real workhorse vans that last a long time and are also great to drive. If you need a reliable, study van for your everyday or working life, but you don’t want to sacrifice style for functionality, the Hornet (or our Transit Custom WASP ICE) might be just the van for you. It has stacks of curb appeal, and as our mods increase the resale value of our vans, it would serve you very well in the long run even if you decide to part with it! Get in touch with us at Swiss Vans, and we’ll do our best to get you on the road in your new Transit Custom Hornet as soon as we can.

Van Leather Ordering Questions That We Might Ask
Obviously the colour of the leather ! There are about 30 leather colours approx. Its great to be different but if you order a ‘Katie Price” its going to be worth less not more in 3 years !
The material. There is standard Robust Leather, Nappa Leather, Mock Suede The robust is the most popular as it resists stains and scratching more. Its like your sofa at home. But you cant beat the feel and smell of Nappa
The stich pattern. Cross, Bently, Oval, list is endless. Ask your account manager for a link to build your leather.
If you want a logo or any branding
Custom Sport WASP & Hornet Upgrades
The Ford Transit Custom Sport WASP is far more flexible than the standard Sport Van from Ford Its based on a 130 Transit Custom Limited
The WASP was first made in 2013 by Swiss Vans and its one of the most copied Sports vans ever made.
Do not waste money on a 170 or 185. Simply get the van remapped locally by Revo or Pendle. There is no physical difference between a 100, 130 170 185 they are all the same engine just with different factory remaps
The Ford Transit Hornet Is the same van as a WASP but we use a different bodykit. There is a front plastic splitter, plastic side skirts, rear apron with a mock exhaust, rear spoiler. It does take quite a bit longer to make as we have to order the bodykit, plus its rather a large fitting job. Hornet we have to make a small delivery charge unless you collect it from us. You can mix and match
We have a choice of 2 front front splitters. 1. WASP 1 2. Hornet
Affordable Custom WASP Options Please ring as it depends on which dealer as to whether we can do this
20 inch alloys (not recommended and warranty implications) but we get asked
Leather from £30 a month for 5 seats obviously less for 3
Reversing cameras £9 a month
Racing stripes !
