Limited edition MS-RT Transit Connect launched

MS-RT has launched a limited edition run of MS-RT R120 models finished in Frozen White based on the best-selling Ford Transit Connect.

MS-RT, which uses styling and technology pioneered by Ford’s works rally team, is producing a limited run of 30 R120s in the mainland UK and six in Northern Ireland, with the model designed and built at its factory in Pontypool, South Wales.

Priced from £25,995 + VAT, the strictly limited edition is based on the Transit Connect panel van as a two or three-seater, in either short or long wheelbase configurations. The vehicle is available only in Frozen White, with red and black rally decals and specially designed white rally-inspired OZ Racing Alloy wheels.

The interior receives further MS-RT treatment, with full leather seats with red stitching and a full carbon fibre sports steering wheel with red centre line.

In addition, it gets the MS-RT quad sports exhaust system with black exhaust tips, black mirror caps, bi-xenon headlamps, Ford Pass Connect, cruise control, wireless charging pad, reversing rear camera and dual sliding loading doors.

A further feature is a Maxhaust system, which uses app-based technology to deliver the sound of a sports exhaust through the van’s integral speakers. This product will be a supply-only option from MS-RT.

With the strictly limited production run – and no plans to increase it – MS-RT aim for it to become a future collectors’ item and help it stand out from other Transit Connects on the road.

All MS-RT Transit Connects including the R120 match Ford’s three-year/100,000-mile warranty, with a choice of manual or automatic transmission.

MS-RT founding director, Edward Davies, said: “The MS-RT Transit Connect has already been a huge success and we’ve developed the R120 in response to customer demand for something even more bespoke. The special edition model is sure to sell out very quickly and become an icon among fans of the MS-RT brand.”
