The new California 30 Years - a strictly limited edition

For the love of freedom

Since 1988, the California has been the symbol of individual freedom, unforgettable holidays and pure adventure. For its 30th birthday, we are offering you a very special gift. Limited to 999 vehicles and with only 30 coming to the UK, each California 30 Years will have a unique badge showing its production number from 1-999. Get one quickly before the others do, and experience the feeling of 30 years of adventure, 30 years of freedom and 30 years of California.

Three decades of refined design 

Things can change a lot in 30 years, but the California’s aged gracefully. Thanks to contrasting roof paintwork and exterior mirrors, 17-inch alloy wheels, body colour door handles and a shiny black B-pillar, your life on holiday is just as stylish as it is at home.

Pop-up roof
From headroom to bedroom

The aluminium pop-up roof provides freedom of movement in the passenger compartment thanks to its expanding bellows. Once it gets dark, the upper level quickly and easily turns into a comfortable sleeping area.

Make a statement

Whether it's a short trip or a long journey, you need the right footwear. That's why the California 30 Years anniversary model comes with the glossy 17-inch "Cascavel" alloy wheels in silver or anthracite.

Anniversary badge
999 unique anniversary badges

You only turn thirty once. That's why each of the 999 anniversary models is unique: the exclusive California badge and numbering makes each of the limited vehicles one of a kind.

Adventure whatever the weather 

Camper vans aren't just for summer. Even if the weather comes over all British, your holiday won't be a damp squib. Stay warm and dry inside thanks to the auxiliary heater with programmable supplementary heating and double-glazed windows as standard. The Bright Wood cabinet trims make for a cosy living environment inside, and the external shower is perfect for keeping cool in summer or hosing down the family after a long day out.

Cabinet decor in Bright Wood
Your very own wardrobe on wheels

In the rear part of the living space, there are cupboard and shelf installations. Both are easily accessible through a practical door and roller shutter.

Practical outdoor shower
Detailed design features

An exterior connection to the on-board fresh water tank is available at the rear of the vehicle. Using the separately housed sprinkler, equipment can be conveniently rinsed before packing up and heading home.

Going the extra mile for you 

With Drive Assist and Tour packages as standard, every journey is a little more relaxed.

Drive Assist
The holiday starts when you turn the key

With the Drive Assist package as standard, your holiday starts as soon as you leave. The intelligent Side Assist lane monitoring system, front and rear parking sensors, Lights & Vision package and LED rear lights ensure you can see everything - and that everyone sees you.

Parking sensors
Front and rear parking sensors

The interlinked parking sensors detect obstacles when parking, providing you with audible and visual warning of your distance to them.

Side Assist
Intelligent monitoring system

Side Assist's lane change monitoring system gives you a warning via display in the wing mirror as soon as the on-board sensors detect a vehicle in your blind spot when changing lanes.



Lights & Vision Package

To improve visibility, the package includes a rear view mirror that automatically dims, preventing dazzle from the traffic behind you. It also includes rain-activated windscreen wipers and automatic headlights that come on when it's dark and illuminate the path to and from the vehicle for security at night.

Tour package
Just as cosy as home

Whether it’s a weekend away or a long road trip, you can never be too comfortable on holiday. That’s why the Tour package offers a comfy sleeping pad to level out the bed and increase its comfort. Come the morning, it folds up in no time and takes up very little space. There’s a practical magnetic torch included too. If you decide to pack the kitchen sink – although one comes as standard – there’s a detachable tow hitch for a trailer included.
