The Ford Transit Custom MS-RT
A fantastic new model release is coming to our Transit Centre in Cardiff soon; the Ford Transit Custom MS-RT, the perfect combination of work and play, and we can’t wait to show our customers this truly special model.
Who are MS-RT?
Petrol heads, performance fanatics and Transit fans will have already heard of and been aware of MS-RT for some time, based in South Wales they are a design led automotive engineering company specialising in Ford vehicles and born from 30 years of motor racing and rally experience. They’ve been customising bespoke vans for years, but now for the first time ever, Ford will be retailing a Transit Custom MS-RT from Transit Centre’s UK wide. This brings the perfect mix of the award winning reliable and best selling Transit Custom, combining it with the stunning looks and performance added by decades of MS-RT engineered experience.
What is the performance like?
The Custom MS-RT has Ford’s EcoBlue 2.0 litre TDCi engine that gives 405Nm of torque meaning it’s highly capable for towing and moving heavy loads. It delivers an impressive 170PS of power with the choice of a 6 speed manual or automatic gearbox. Eibach performance lowering springs improves handling and responsiveness, whilst providing the all-important payload capacity.
What about the exterior styling?
The differences are not subtle, with a full front bumper and grill replacement, wide body arch extensions, 18’’ exclusive anthracite OZ racing alloys with 103 XL Load rated Hankook Ventus S1 evo2 tyres, twin sports exhausts and MS-RT branding throughout; the MS-RT clearly stands out from the other Custom models including the impressive looking Sport model.
On top of this, there is the option of a 2 or 3 seat panel van, 5 seat double-cab-in-van and a 6 seat double-cab-in-van. There is the choice of short and long wheelbase mixed with either liftgate or twin back doors.
Is the interior any different?
