Ford Fiesta M-Sport front An M-Sport edition of Ford’s popular Fiesta has just been announced by the Blue Oval marque. The M-Sport’s partners at Permashine are behind the project which includes a number of performance and aesthetic enhancements, as well as mirroring the EcoBoost powered Ford Fiesta RS WRC,

The M-Sport Edition Fiesta comes complete with a unique gloss black rear spoiler and graphics which draw inspiration from the 2015 M-Sport WRT (World Rally Team) livery.

Each car also includes embroidered seats featuring the M-Sport logo, a custom steering wheel with Nappa leather and Alcantara trim, a carbonfibre gear lever insert with M-Sport logo on the gate pattern, an M-Sport logo on the rev counter and individual carbon-fiber built numbers on the tailgate to define true limited edition status.

The most exciting upgrades however can be found under the bonnet. The 1.6 EcoBoost direct injection engine comes complete with a Mountune MP215 upgrade which retains the factory warranty and delivers 215 PS at 6,000 rpm as well as 320 Nm at 3,000 rpm.

The Ford IB6 gearbox also features a Quaife ATB limited slip differential for improved traction and OZ Superturismo LM 7×17-inch ET42 light alloy wheels in matt graphite complete the package.

Further options are available for those who desire the ultimate edition including an optional ‘Handling Pack’ with Bilstein inverted mono tube struts and Eibach Pro springs for improved handling. An optional brake upgrade featuring Alcon callipers, 332mm discs and Goodridge braided brake hoses is also available as well as an M-Sport cold air induction system with Pipercross high flow foam filter.

A modified exhaust is also available with a custom-made rear silencer from Chris Tullett Exhausts, the firm who supply the exhausts for the rally-winning Fiesta RS WRC.

The success of the M-Sport Transit has encouraged Ford to deliver an M-Sport Edition for the Ford Fiesta. And Ford is delighted that its partners at Permashine have done just that for its first collaborated road car project, which will soon be made available.

The M-Sport edition is a proper hot hatch with a Quaife differential in the gearbox as well as a host of other well thought out options and additions supplied by Ford’s trade partners.
