Since Ford brought the European tried and tested Fiesta over to U.S. shores it has had quite a bit of success.

With that box checked, bring along the factory options after market for the Fiesta and turn the little hatchback into a rally car.

This can be achieved by use of the Ford Fiesta R2 rally package portrayed above. Fast Ford fans unite is what I’d say. Not only for the part where you can get your Ford Fiesta to drive better, to accelerate and stop harder but also have a place to test it.

You see, the Ford Fiesta R2 rally kit was developed in collaboration with M-Sport. And since M-Sport is at the other end of Ford’s long lasting rally partnership the R2 kit actually qualifies the buyer to compete in the Fiesta Sport Trophy Championship which will be a group of the Rally America Series 2WD class.

The actual kit includes a job on the engine that brings the output up to 168 horsepower and 134 lb-ft of torque (40% more than in stock form) and also offers up a five-speed Sadev sequential gearbox. Other interesting changes bring you Reiger adjustable dampers, a set of Eibach springs and some ventilated disc brakes with four-piston calipers.
