At €15, This Is A Ford Fiesta WRC Everyone Can Afford

Ford is celebrating its 2017 wins in the World Rally Championship (WRC) with a miniature Fiesta rally car, made in collaboration with Lego.

Part of the Danish company’s Speed Champions range, it joins the recently unveiled 1968 Mustang Fastback, and costs €14.99 ($19) in continental Europe, and £12.99 ($18) in Britain.

When the 203 small bricks come together, the Ford Fiesta M-Sport WRC Lego Speed Champions measures 13cm (5in) long and 6cm (2in) wide. Along with the authentic miniature race-graphics, muscular wheel arches and dramatic spoilers on both ends, it also comes with racing overalls and driver figure that can be placed inside, through the removable windshield.

Ford says that the set includes a choice of wheel trims too, along with two interchangeable bonnets. One of them is suitable for night driving, as it features the special spotlights that mimic the real ones.

“The Lego Speed Champions series is a fun way to celebrate the success of Ford cars in motorsport. We hope it will inspire future generations of car designers, engineers, and rally drivers”, commented the Ford Global Director of Motorsport, Mark Rushbrook.

The real-life Ford Fiesta WRC, which is based on the latest iteration road-going car, was victorious in the FIA WRC Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ competitions, with Sebastien Ogier behind the wheel, and Julien Ingrassia as a co-driver.

Ford wants to continue its success in WRC this season too, with the 2018 Fiesta rally car, which uses a 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 380hp and 450Nm (331lb-ft) of torque. The unit works together with a six-speed sequential transmission to channel the output to both axles.
