To Boldly Go
Fancy driving where no man has gone before? Then you need to be behind the wheel of a T6 Swamper; here’s one that can do just that
Simon Cooke

It’s Wales—about as far West as you can go without falling into the Irish Sea—and its Autumn. So obviously, it’s absolutely chucking it down. I’m already doing an Oscar-winning impression of a drowned rat just going from my driver’s seat to the boot of the car to sort out my camera kit for the upcoming photoshoot. There’s no suitable cover for miles around and the nearest multi-storey car park is probably 100 miles away; I should have listened to my mum when she told me to get a proper job; its a bit late now.

When you run a company called VW T5 Upgrades, a company that has carved itself a big slice of the Swamper market, you don’t expect them to rock up in anything less than an OTT Swamper. The boss, Matt Brooke, doesn’t disappoint. He set up the company in 2016, it sells wheels, tyres, suspension and styling parts to name just a few items on the inventory. Naturally his T6 demo van is a walking, talking advert for his company and its numerous products. Well, to be totally honest, it doesn’t walk and talk—but you get the idea.
