This is the new Ford Fiesta R2, a rally car designed by M-Sport Poland to meet the latest FIA R2 regulations. Based on the road-going Fiesta ST-Line, the team worked together with the Ford Motor Company who provided financial backing and support for the rally car programme.

Set to compete in the Junior WRC Championship in 2019, the Fiesta R2 features upgraded suspension that uses Reiger dampers which are three-way adjustable on the front and two-way adjustable on the rear, Eibach springs (soft or hard settings) and an optional anti-roll bar.

The rally car is powered by a 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine that has been tuned to produce 200 hp at 6,500 rpm, paired with a Sadev five-speed sequential gearbox. The gearbox is adjustable across three different settings, with a plated limited-slip differential also available.

On the other hand, braking duties is handled by Alcon competition calipers that are clamp down on ventilated AP Racing front discs and Alcon solid rear discs. The design of the car isn’t as extreme as the higher-class Fiesta WRC, but the Fiesta R2 does attempt to mimic its sibling’s look.
