You can tell by its looks this is no ordinary Fiesta ST. Instead, it features a distinctive bodywork designed as a replica of the R5 rally car built by M-Sport.
Currently up for sale on Autotrader, the rally-inspired hot hatch looks like a Ford you’d expect to see sitting in Ken Block’s garage. It includes a special bodywork with bespoke front and rear fenders, unique side skirts, a large rear wing, and a Hoonicorn livery with bright shades of blue, pink and purple. There are also Monster Energy stickers across the exterior.
While the Fiesta certainly looks like a legitimate rally car, is isn’t quite as fast as one. However, that does not mean it is sluggish. In fact, the 1.6-liter EcoBoost turbo four has been outfitted with a new Garrett turbocharger that lifts grunt up to 327 HP and 335 lb-ft (454 Nm) of torque and is paired to a six-speed manual transmission with a racing clutch and a hydraulic handbrake. Other modifications include an AEM air intake, MRT Rally exhaust and Magnaflow resonators.
The owner also went to the trouble of extensively modifying the interior with a pair of Sparco racing seats, a Sparco steering wheel and a full roll cage. There is no word on whether or not the car is street legal, but the listing does confirm that it has 25,000 miles (40,233 km) on the clock.
As for the price, it sure ain’t cheap and will set back anyone interested a cool $52,000. Is it worth it? We’ll let you be the judge of that.
