Think you know the Ford Transit? Well, think again. The Ford Transit Custom MS-RT isn’t a van for just getting the job done; it’s a van for those who want something more, a van for those who really care about how their van looks and, more importantly, how it drives. It has sporty good looks and a luxury interior, elevating the Transit to the next level.
MS-RT are a design-led automotive engineering company who specialise in creating bespoke Ford vehicles that stand out on the road. They’ve been awarded Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) status by the Ford Motor Company. That means that they must meet set standards in manufacturing and quality control, are regularly assessed by Ford and offer comprehensive customer support. As all of their conversion work is guaranteed, it doesn’t affect your Ford warranty and the vehicles are approved to sell in Ford dealerships, like Arnold Clark.
With the MS-RT bespoke full plastic exterior body styling, the Transit Custom instantly looks sportier. But with 18-inch Anthracite OZ Racing alloys with 103 XL load rated Hankook Ventus S1 evo3 tyres and a stainless-steel twin sports exhaust system, you know this is a van to be reckoned with. As you’d expect from a luxury vehicle, you’ll also get body colour door mirrors which are power adjustable and power foldable.
While you’ll enjoy plenty of premium perks, this van has added practicality with dual side-loading doors making it even easier to deliver your payload. There’s even LED lighting in the load space so there’s no messing around trying to turn on the torch on your phone when you’re unloading. To top it all off there’s an efficient yet powerful 185ps Ford EcoBlue 2.0-litre TDCi 6-speed engine with the option of manual or automatic transmission offering 405Nm of torque.
Have you ever seen a transit with handcrafted Nappa leather and suede seats? Well, you have now. The interior is luxurious and features a bespoke carbon fibre sports steering wheel. The floor mats and dash clocks are all customised by MS-RT as well, completing the full bespoke package. There’s also heated seats to ensure you enjoy a comfortable drive and air conditioning to cool you down when required. Of course, as with any luxury vehicle, cruise control comes as standard. But that’s not all.
There’s plenty of innovative features available with Ford’s voice activated Sync 3 entertainment with sat nav and Ford Pass. And with parking sensors and a reversing camera, you’ll be able to park in even the tightest of spaces. On top of that you have a heated windscreen so you’ll never have to delay your journey waiting for your screen to defog, and bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights so you’ll always have a clear view of the road ahead. You want more? Well, you also have automatic headlights and rain sensors for your wipers. They really have thought of everything.
