As useful and utilitarian as they are, panel vans can be kind of an eyesore. Ford’s Transit is certainly no exception. But we’ve now got proof that they don’t have to be ugly — not at all — as MS-RT has just launched their rally-inspired Ford Transit Connect Launch Edition.
While the customizer hasn’t toyed with Ford’s 1.5L EcoBlue diesel engine, they’ve styled the Transit from head to toe in magnificent fashion, transforming the transport into a much more handsome and aggressive-looking ride. That includes a Magnetic Gray finish, along with a body kit that includes new bumpers, grilles, side skirts, front and rear diffusers, and a spoiler. And they’ve finished it off with a number of flourishes — like a stainless steel sports exhaust, bronze-colored OZ Racing alloy wheels, and new Michelin tires. They’ve even taken the interior to task with nappa leather and suede custom upholstery, carbon fiber inlays, and a 6″ touchscreen mated to satellite navigation and a backup camera. On top of the cost of the vehicle, this bespoke package (of which only 40 are to be made) starts at $31,200.
