Tuning company MS-RT has revealed its new version of Ford’s Transit Connect light van.

The new model, which is on sale now, has been made available alongside MS-RT’s existing conversion of the Transit Custom medium van.

MS-RT, which uses styling and technology from Ford’s works rally team, has given the Transit Connect a complete makeover, including restyled front and rear bumpers, new grilles, front and rear diffusers, side skirts and a spoiler.

It also gets a stainless steel sports exhaust system, 18-inch OZ Racing alloy wheels with an optional limited edition bronze finish, a carbon inlay sports steering wheel and a handmade nappa leather and suede interior.

Other standard equipment includes LED load space lighting, a premium infotainment pack with satnav and a reversing camera, bi-xenon headlights and twin side loading doors.

An MS-RT gift pack is also included.

Available options include a Maxhaust exhaust system with app-controlled soundtrack, a rally sticker pack, black exhaust tips and a full carbon steering wheel.

The conversion has been designed to pass Ford QVM approval.

Prices excluding VAT are £23,995 with a manual gearbox, or £24,995 with an auto, and there is a three-year, 100,000-mile warranty.

The first MS-RT Transit Connects are due to be delivered next month.

A long-wheelbase version and a double cab will also be introduced later this year.
