SsangYong Motor UK has announced the appointment of Car SOS star Fuzz Townshend as its new brand ambassador.
Townshend (pictured) will be one of the first people to sample the ownership experience offered by the all-new SsangYong Musso pick-up truck, launched last month, and revealed that he was "looking forward to working with the team" at the Luton-based NSC.
As well as presenting Car SOS, Fuzz is also a mechanic and former technical editor of Practical Classics.
A drummer in a band, he learnt to play from local jazz musician Al Reed, making his stage debut in 1977 at the age of 12.
He signed with Echo Records in 1997 and released his first album, 'Far In' in the UK in 1999 and US in 2001.
He began presenting Car SOS, broadcast on the National Geographic Channel in 2012.
SsangYong Motor UK’s managing director, Nick Laird, said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for our brand with fantastic new products like Rexton and new Musso.
"We are all really looking forward to working with Fuzz and think he will make an excellent and highly relevant ambassador for the brand.”
Townshend said: “I love the new Musso - it’s perfect for my lifestyle. I drive a lot of miles and live deep into the countryside where a proper 4x4 pick-up is essential.
"Always tough and well-engineered, SsangYong is a growing brand in the UK, and its products are very good now in terms of styling, comfort and equipment. This new vehicle is seriously impressive.”
