For those who spend hours a day behind the wheel, day dreaming is almost an inevitable occurrence whether on a long drive or a painful crawl. In times like these, imaginations can run wild and for those who daydream of being rally drivers behind the wheel of their Ford Transit, the Blue Oval and vehicle design specialist, MS-RT, have turned their fantasy into reality….somewhat.
The MS-RT Transit Custom and Transit Connect was inspired by the M-Sport Ford World Rally Team’s Fiesta WRC car with colours from Ford’s Special Vehicle Operations selection.
MS-RT is the on-road vehicle production division of long-term Ford partners M-Sport, who have competed in the World Rally Championship, Global Rallycross and GT3 racing. As a member of Ford’s Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) programme, MS-RT conversions are approved for sale in Ford dealerships with conversion work guaranteed by MS-RT.
“MS-RT conversions mean our motorsport-loving customers can mix business with pleasure, safe in the knowledge that their modified vehicle is fully supported by Ford,” said Ford of Europe.
The rally-inspired look is projected through a restyled grille, more aggressive air intakes, integrated fog lights and a motorsport-inspired rear diffuser. For a more aggressive stance, the Transit also received wider wheel arch extensions, a roof spoiler, quad exhaust tips before being finished with a set of bespoke 18-inch OZ Racing anthracite alloy wheels.
If that’s not extravagant enough, especially when you consider the purpose of such a vehicle, Ford is even offering optional race decals and liveries for the Transit! The madness doesn’t stop there. Inside, the Transits are line with Nappa leather and suede seats, MS-RT sports steering wheel with carbon fibre inlays!
