The Ford Transit Van Gets Hotter With New Rally-Inspired Body Kit, Custom Colors

Working for Jaguar, Tom Walkinshaw Racing also used a Ford Transit as a powertrain mule for the XJ220. The twin-turbo V6 gave the van 540 horsepower, after which it landed at the Benetton F1 team as a parts truck. Ultimately, the legendary XJ220 Transit was purchased, restored and upgraded by Jaguar Racing and XJ220 specialist Don Law Racing.

A touch under that level in performance, the MS-RT Transit Custom features Ford’s 185-horsepower turbodiesel delivering 306 foot-pounds of torque that’s sent through either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox. In the other corner, the smaller MS-RT Transit Connect packs a 1.5-liter EcoBlue diesel with 120-horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque, available with a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

MS-RT is quick to point out that its OZ Racing alloy wheels also reduce unsprung weight. 

Cheers Mr. Wilson, these will do.
