    Limited-Edition Ford Transit Is A Racy Van With Bucket Seats

    Packages will definitely be on time from now on as MS-RT is spicing up the Ford Transit van by giving it the “R-Spec” treatment bundling upgrades on all fronts. The company behind the project has two decades worth of rally experience and it has now decided to infuse some of its WRC magic into a limited version of the Blue Oval’s workhorse to mark M-Sport World Rally Team’s successful season.

    Based on the existing MS-RT Transit Custom, the new special edition features a beefier set of brakes with braided hoses in blue or yellow. It also gets custom engine hoses for the turbodiesel 2.0-liter engine, along with a new exhaust box and an aggressive body featuring a model-exclusive front diffuser. The look-at-me vibe is enhanced by the graphics pack and a set of extra lights incorporated into the front grille. As a final touch, the optional black 20-inch OZ Racing wheels further contribute to the van’s special appearance.

    Only 50 units will ever be made and all of them are going to share the pair of body-hugging Recaro bucket front seats fitted with blue seatbelts also installed for the rear seats to match the stitching applied on the steering wheel and gear lever.
    The MS-RT Transit Custom in its standard configuration already has a healthy 170 horsepower and 405 Newton-meters (299 pound-feet) worth of diesel punch, but the R-Spec dials the output to 208 hp and a torquetastic 486 Nm (358 lb-ft).

    The company is currently taking orders in the United Kingdom for its racy van and is asking £35,995 (plus VAT). You will have to fork out an additional £500 if you want those wheels or stick with the standard smaller 18-inch set you get on the regular version. To sweeten the pot, MS-RT will also throw in a custom sports exhaust system to better play the engine’s diesel song.

    I'd think it cooler if it actually had some power under the hood. Say 350-400hp.

    More than once I have gone through the thought project of what it would take to swap the RS drivetrain into a Transit Connect. So, by all means RS owners, please keep crashing cars so someone can make this dream a reality.

    Unattainable to anyone else other than a F1 team, but beautiful nonetheless:

    I had a new transit full size work van. It had the 3.5 ecoboost with 3.73 gears and that thing actually made some mad torque. It would snap your neck back. It was actually kind of fun to drive. They should offer that motor and this thing may be pretty cool for a transit.
