Currently reading: Motorsport-inspired Transit to be sold in Ford dealerships
MS-RT has been awarded Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier status for its customised Transit

Ford Motor Company has approved MS-RT’s recently launched Transit Custom for sale through its UK dealer network. 

MS-RT specialises in performing motorsport-inspired modifications to Ford’s line-up of commercial vehicles, primarily the Ranger pick-up and A history of the Transit van. 

The MS-RT Transit Custom comes with a unique bodykit, 18in OZ racing alloy wheels and Eibach lowering springs fitted as standard, while MS-RT-branded decals top off the visual enhancements. 

In the cabin, the standard Transit Custom interior has been enhanced with the addition of carbon inlays on the steering wheel and hand-trimmed nappa leather seats. 

The Transit Custom’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ecoblue Diesel engine has been tuned to produce 168bhp and 299lb ft of torque which, with the addition of a sports exhaust system, is good for a top speed of 93mph. 

The Welsh company took inspiration from World Rally Championship team M-Sport, officially backed by Ford, to create a Transit with motorsport-bred aerodynamic and technological qualities.

The MS-RT Transit Custom is available in selected UK dealerships from £29,995 for the entry-level single-cab variant, rising to £35,995 for the range-topping R-Spec edition

0-60 Rust Times, Racing White Van Man

I hope that this transit has better rust protection than a standard transit because £35k+ is expensive for a van that’s going to be failing its first MOT on severe corrosion, plus white van man already thinks he’s a racing driver without pimping his ride

I doubt the engines tuned,

I doubt the engines tuned, those figures are the normal output for the 170ps.

It's not needed, White Van Man already drives like an Idiot. He doesn't need a top speed of 93mph. All vans should be governed to 70, lower if possible.

As opposed to the idiots I see driving cars every day?No reason for any vehicle to be able to go faster than 70mph on the public highways really.

Only thing not needed here is your uninformed judgemental comments that paint negatively, everyone who gets behind the wheel of a white van. How stupid are you?. Now all of those drivers are male?. How stupid are you?.


You should be governed from your own total stupidity and that would be our blessing as well.


You are EXTREMELY stupid.
