a couple of weeks Ago I presented to the Ford Fiesta 2017, the renewal of the popular utility that takes four decades in the market. Now it’s the turn of its version for the competition, the Ford Fiesta WRC 2017. This new issue takes as base the production model, although the guys of M Sport have been commissioned to make the necessary modifications so that it is at the height in the Championship World Rally championship 2017.
As many will know already, the regulations in the WRC has changed for the next season. This will allow the cars to be faster and the Fiesta WRC 2017 do not want to fall behind. Under the bonnet hides an engine EcoBoost four-cylinder and 1.6-liter, which will have more power. Develops nothing less than 380 HP and 450 Nm of torque and will be linked to a new sequential six-speed transmission.
M-Sport also has been in charge of redesign the suspensions, that are adjustable. It also includes a few new brake discs with four-piston calipers. In terms of its exterior appearance, could not be more aggressive. Takes the lines of the new Fiesta and takes to the extreme with bumpers, oversized and a rear that take your breath away. Stands out for its huge rear spoiler and by the prominent horn.
Malcolm Wilson, director of M-Sport, stated that “after having driven the car, I can honestly say that it is one of the most impressive that we have ever produced”. Also added that “more than 95% has been designed from the ground up and our team has had everything he has wanted to build the best car possible”. The goal of the Ford Fiesta WRC 2017 for the next season will be fight for the championship.
