M-Sport, the company behind Ford's WRC (World Rally Championship) cars, has come up with a special version of the Ford Transit inspired by its Fiesta RS WRC racer.

The motorsports outfit has collaborated with Van Sport, another UK firm, to come up with the special edition Transit in time for the van's 50th anniversary.

The Transit M-Sport rides on lowered Eibach suspension and 18-inch OZ Racing wheels shod with 18-inch Michelin rubber. There's also a new quad-tipped exhaust system, but unfortunately there's no talk of any extra power or torque from the Custom's 2.2-litre turbo-diesel.

In Europe the most powerful production variant of the front-wheel drive Transit Custom has 113kW of power and 385Nm of torque at its disposal.

The M-Sport has been fitted with a sports body kit including wheel arch and rear bumper extensions, a rear spoiler, a unique set of side sills, and a new lower front bumper with blue-tinted LED driving lights. In order to complete the rally car look, the Transit Custom M-Sport has been kitted out with livery inspired by the Fiesta RS WRC.

On the inside, the reworked Custom has unique instrument dials, leather seats with M-Sport embossing, and plenty of blue trim and highlights.

No word yet from M-Sport or Van Sport as to how many rally-inspired vans will be built, nor how much they will cost.
