Olsbergs MSE Fiesta - Gumtree World RX

Under the Hood of the Olsbergs MSE Fiesta

Find out more about why we’re driving at the Gumtree World RX of South Africa.

 

Body:
Body panels are made from super-strong and super-lightweight composites in a body that imitates the bodylines found on the Mk. VII three-door Fiesta ST.

 

Wheels:
The Swedish team worked closely with Motegi Racing to create custom wheels, which are “designed to sit flush with the car, decreasing the risk of broken wheels from contact.”

 

Drivetrain:
This race car is powered by a 16-valve, turbocharged, 2.0-liter, Duratec-HE four-cylinder with an Olsbergs MD head. Other features include a Pectel ECU, Tibuc inlet manifold, PWR intercooler, Magnaflow exhaust, and a titanic Garrett boost-maker. These reportedly add up to 560 brake horsepower at 6,400 rpm (although peak power is probably closer to 600), and 840 nm of torque at 4 000 rpm. 0-to-60 is achieved in around two seconds.

 

Total weight for the Ford comes to a minimum of 1300kgs, which includes me, the driver.
