A LIMITED edition of the Isuzu D-Max pick-up truck is being released in a special red paint job to mark the Japanese brand's centenary.

The Venetian Red finish will be restricted to just 100 versions of the D-Max Blade model priced from £25,249. The colour scheme reflects Isuzu's trademark shade which it has used throughout its history.

Powered by a 2.5-litre diesel engine which can pull more than three tonnes, the Blade is Izuzu's flagship pick-up and features leather seats, 18-inch alloys as well as colour-coded load bed covers and canopies.

Isuzu claims the 163ps engine is good for an official fuel return of 38.7mpg and the pick-up helped the company notch up record sales in Britain last year with 6,220 models sold.

Isuzu is the longest-running car producer in Japan and first set out to produce vehicles in Tokyo back in 1916 going on to gain the rights to build Wolseley cars for the eastern Asian market in the 1920s.
