WHAT IF Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Terminator was actually a White Van Man?
This is what it would look like.
Holy moly it’s the coolest van ever built.
For White Van Man this is the ultimate, like an S&M version of the Ford Tranny.
This is actually the mighty MS-RT Transit, a go-faster version of Britain’s favourite van built by the suitably named Van-Sport.
That’s a firm of blokes from South Wales who clearly have nothing better to do than make the most horny van in the world.
They are celebrating a two-year anniversary since Van-Sport teamed up with British rallying firm M-Sport.
The MS-RT started life as a standard 170bhp Transit Custom DCiV (Double Cab-in-Van, as it says in the handbook).
With seating for five, a rear tailgate and dual sliding side doors, MS-RT then added luxuries like a sat-nav and reversing camera, LED load space lighting and a power converter.
But under the bonnet, it’s a real weapon.
An ECU flash by Steinbauer takes the Custom’s 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine from the standard 170bhp to a more meaty 208bhp. There’s loads more tech stuff I won’t bore you with. But needless to say it’s far too fast for a van – and the quickest you can get your hands on.
Then comes the exterior aggression.
There’s a new, lower front diffuser, Lazer LED driving lights in the grille, hefty side skirts and a rear diffuser with shiny pipes to go with the new back box. Just add go-faster stripes.
Inside, bucket seats with blue seat belts fill the front of the cabin while suede-like upholstery fills the rear.
It doesn’t seem that expensive either with prices starting at £35,995 plus VAT.
Not for the coolest van in the world.
