CM Fairlane Mk 11 range unveiled at National Funeral Exhibition
Coleman Milne, the Bolton-based manufacturer of coach-built limousines and hearses, unveiled the latest addition to the Fairlane range of Funeral vehicles at the 2009 National Funeral Exhibition at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.
The hearse and limousine, based on the 4 litre Australian Ford Fairlane were exhibited in both black and silver following a four month teaser marketing campaign that gave consumers a glimpse of the new vehicles as they were under development.
Sales & Marketing Director Geoff Hudson was pleased with the reaction to the new product quoting “There has been a tremendous buzz throughout the company during the development of the car with everybody from the guys on the shop floor and the engineers who develop the ideas through to the Sales and Marketing departments getting thoroughly immersed in the vehicles.”
The Fairlane range features a thoroughly revamped styling for both the Cardinal hearse and the Dorchester limousine, offering a radical progression to a more curvilinear aesthetic without compromising functionality, space and passenger comfort. Geoff Hudson continues, “the vehicles have been designed to act as the central focus in the 'visual stage' that is a funeral procession and the increased expanses of glass in the sides and roof of the Cardinal hearse achieve this effect with great success. Everybody at Coleman Milne is really proud of these vehicles and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who visited our stand at the National Funeral Exhibition for their feedback and continued support.”
Fairlane Dorchester Limousine
The Fairlane Dorchester Limousine offers a new choice in the UK market for funeral vehicles and features class leading passenger space, air suspension to rear axle and dual zone climate control to make the driver and passenger experience as comfortable as possible.
The Fairlane Dorchester has a 6 way power adjustable seating system. A raft of new technology includes a Reverse Camera, ABS, EBD and Advanced Traction Control.
Fairlane Cardinal Hearse
Coleman Milne's stunning new Cardinal Hearse also carries a number of the technological advancements as the Dorchester, however, undoubtedly, one of the talking points of the show was the innovative single lift, power operated tailgate that allows bearers easy access to a large flat, full length deck with full size bearer seats.
In an exciting new development for Coleman Milne, a Classic version will be launched in September
