MS-RT And Carlex Design Dedicate Limited Edition Ford Ranger To Valentino Rossi

In order to pay tribute to a motorcycle racing icon such as Valentino Rossi, MS-RT joined forces with Carlex Design to put together a bespoke Ford Ranger with VR/46 branding both inside and out.

While the Nappa leather interior features a custom steering wheel as well as VR/46 stickers, boards and embroidered motifs, the exterior of the truck packs a new front bumper, grille, and 18″ graphite wheels.

Other add-ons include Laser LED full beam assist lights for the grille, a roof-mounted light bar, full suspension-lift kit and a bespoke dual-exit MS-RT Sports Exhaust system.

In terms of performance, this Ranger is packing Ford’s 3.2-liter TDCi Duratorq diesel unit, offering 200 PS (197 HP) and 470 Nm (346 lb-ft) of torque, available from 1,500 to 2,750 rpm.

As for tech and convenience features, we’re talking 8-way electrically-adjustable heated drivers seat with lumbar support, tailgate assist, power foldable matte black door mirrors, dual-zone climate control, an 8″ TFT touchscreen with Ford SYNC3 (voice control, Bluetooth and USB connectivity), sat-nav, a rear-view camera, front parking sensors and a 230V interior invertor.

Customers can also opt for the Off-Road package, which includes not only the previously-mentioned suspension lift kit and roof-mounted LED light bar, but also an MS-RT underbody fuel tank protector and exclusive front and rear rubber floor mats.

    Nice pictures….

    Cool truck, but ah….Why? He’s a motorcycle racer, not a off-road racer and Ford doesn’t make his bike…so I don’t get it. And it may just be me, but I really think they need some sort of designation on the truck…like…and I’m just spit-ballin’ here, but how about his initials and his bike number? That might be cool….even though you know, he races a bike. It just seems to be…I dunno…missing something…

      Well, sometimes he races in a Fiesta WRC, so I think that’s why this Ranger exists…

        Still…then do a Fiesta.
