Michael is one of Britain's most acclaimed chefs having held two Michelin stars for 18 years. Michael has cooked in 10 Downing Street for the Prime Minister, received an MBE in 2006 for services to the hospitality industry and was awarded AA Chef’s Chef of the Year in 2007.
Michael has been a loyal customer of White Horse Motors for the past 7 years and is now on his 3rd Isuzu D-Max!
He uses his D-Max predominantly for work, travelling around the UK and overseeing dining experiences at various venues as well as being a partner and ambassador for the ROKiT Williams Racing team during the Formula 1 season.
Michael enjoys the Isuzu D-Max as it fits into his lifestyle perfectly and is in use daily, he finds it comfortable on long journeys and finds it invaluable when it comes to practicality too. He loves the fact that the D-Max is very robust and each truck has been so reliable and never let him down over the 100,000 miles he has covered between his previous two trucks. When the D-Max is not travelling around the UK it is in use back at home in Devon predominantly based at Lympstone Manor, Michael's flagship luxury country house hotel as well as his other restaurants around Devon and Cornwall.
With both of his previous D-Maxs Michael selected the Blade to be his model of choice, however this time he decided to opt for the Utah with a more of a personal and bespoke touch. His new Isuzu has been fitted using a range of genuine Isuzu accessories with a slight twist opting for a dark exterior look deleting all of the chrome for a gloss black finish, which works incredibly well with the Splash white exterior paint giving it the perfect contrast. To finish the look gloss back 19” centurion alloy wheels were fitted along with several other enhancements. Michael's Utah really demonstrates the wide range of genuine accessories and options you can fit to a D-Max to make it your very own working or lifestyle truck.
