Another special edition Ford Fiesta has popped up, and this one’s from Ford New Zealand. It’s called the AB35 Fiesta, built to celebrate the company’s 17-year sponsorship of the national rugby union team, the All Blacks.

Just 35 of these All Blacks-inspired limited edition cars will be made, and it has a fair bit added on. The base car is an European-made Titanium specification 5-speed manual, with a Mountune bodykit – including a carbon lip front spoiler, rear spoiler extension and side skirts – strapped on for starters.

Exclusive to the edition – priced at NZ$35,990 – are 17-inch alloy wheels and graphics, the latter designed with the input of the All Blacks, and each AB35 vehicle also comes with a personalised plate.

Inside, new kit in the cabin – which features a dashboard top and door card trim in a coffee-coloured shade (not unlike the Sport+ version in China) – includes leather sports seats (with the AB35 logo), leather bound steering wheel, alloy sports pedals, a leather wrapped illuminated gear knob and Fiesta carpet mats.

The sound system also gets reworked, with the installation of Sony front component speakers, an 800 watt amplifier and a 12-inch subwoofer housed in a custom tyre well fibreglass enclosure.

It’s not just flash with no dash – the AB35 gets a Mountune performance package as well, consisting of a high-flow air induction system and a cat-back exhaust system (replete with twin-exhaust tips) as well as re-calibration of the lump to improve the AB35’s 1.6 litre Ti-VCT Sigma mill’s power output from the stock 118 hp at 6,000 rpm and 152 Nm at 4,050 rpm to 140 hp at 6,750 rpm and 170 Nm at 4,250 rpm. The improved output helps the AB35 do the 0-100 kph sprint in 7.9 secs, compared to the stock version’s 9.9 seconds.
