d7cf70df-74cf-44c3-807c-31af4ee71fe8

Ford Transit Custom and Transit Connect vans developed by vehicle design specialist MS‑RT will soon be available direct from Ford Transit Centres.

The MS-RT Transit Custom and Transit Connect deliver radical sports styling inspired by the M-Sport Ford World Rally Team’s Fiesta WRC car, while retaining the popular commercial vehicles’ practicality, durability and the full Ford warranty.

A comprehensive range of bold and distinctive colour options from the Ford Special Vehicle Options (SVO) palette is also available for the MS-RT Transit Custom to further enhance its appearance and complement the spectacular body kit. MS-RT Transit Custom and Transit Connect will be available to order from September.

With stunning, authentic motorsport design and – for Transit Custom – the option to personalise with a huge range of head-turning colours, the MS-RT Transits are like no other vans on the road”, said Brendan Lyne, director, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Europe.

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.

The head-turning MS-RT Transit Custom and Transit Connect bring the spirit of the rally stage to the road with a restyled grille and a radically redesigned front fascia that incorporates more aggressive air intakes, integrated fog lights and a motorsports-inspired diffuser element.

Wide wheel arch extensions are filled with new, bespoke 18-inch OZ Racing anthracite alloy wheels, complemented by sporty side skirts that create a lower profile. At the rear, an integrated diffuser element and roof spoiler emphasise the rally-bred character. MS-RT Transit Custom receives a twin-pipe sports exhaust, with MS-RT Transit Connect gaining a distinctive quad-exit system; customers can specify optional Ceramic Black exhaust tips.

In addition to the standard range of colour options, MS-RT Transit Custom can also be finished in any colour from Ford’s extensive SVO range for an even more eye-catching van with added road presence. For additional racing style, optional decal kits let customers apply a distinctive livery to their van.

Bespoke interiors feature handcrafted MS-RT Nappa leather and suede seats, MS-RT sports steering wheels with carbon fibre inlays, and MS-RT branded instrument clocks and floor mats.

Standard features also include Ford’s SYNC 3 voice-activated connectivity system with a colour touchscreen – allowing drivers to connect mobile devices and plan routes for optimum productivity – and a FordPass Connect modem delivering Wi-Fi connectivity for up to ten devices. Drivers also benefit from standard sat-nav, rear-view camera and bi-xenon headlights.

Ford’s latest generation of EcoBlue diesel engines deliver powerful performance and fuel efficiency. MS-RT Transit Custom features Ford’s 185PS 2.0-litre EcoBlue engine, delivering a hefty 415Nm of torque with a choice of six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox. MS-RT Transit Connect’s 120PS 1.5-litre EcoBlue engine delivers 270Nm of torque through a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Panel van and double-cab-in-van variants of Transit Custom and Transit Connect are available; all featuring dual side loading doors and LED loadspace lighting as standard, with load volumes and payloads unchanged from the standard vans.

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 without affecting the Ford warranty.
