Fast Ford



Not officially a Ford product, but one of the rarest and sportiest Fiestas ever built was the M-Sport Edition. Based on the entry-level ST-1 in either Frozen White or Spirit Blue (at a £245 premium), the M-Sport Edition sprinkled some WRC magic onto a road car. Power was increased to 197bhp (212bhp on overboost) via Mountune’s fully-warrantied MP215 package, while a Quaife ATB diff meant all of that power could be fully utilised. The OZ 17in alloys, funky new WRC-style rear spoiler and custom M-Sport graphics gave it rally-car kerb appeal. Buyers could add even more spec too: Eibach lowering springs, Alcon big brakes, M-Sport induction kit, and a Chris Tullett Exhausts rear box were all on the options list. And, as nice touch, M-Sport’s Malcolm Wilson personally signed each car, his signature found under the sunvisor.
