An exciting new collaboration between vehicle styling specialists Van-Sport and motorsport legend Malcolm Wilson is being supported with market-leading data from automotive experts cap hpi.
MS-RT is the result of the Van Sport and Malcolm Wilson team-up which sees both combining their wealth of experience to create an exclusive range of Ford commercial vehicles each with a sporting edge and created by hand.
Helping to put MS-RT in the driving seat with the initiative is cap hpi consulting, who have partnered with them to provide valuable insight and data analysis.
MS-RT have built a range of commercial vehicles including the MS-RT Ford Transit Custom, MS-RT Ford Transit Connect and MS-RT Ford Ranger. They have collaborated on design with icons of motorsport including Valentino Rossi and Ken Block to create limited editions of the MS-RT Transit Custom and MS-RT Transit Ranger.
Premium components and craftsmanship are just a few of the ingredients involved in every single MS-RT conversion and a key differentiator from MS-RT’s competitors.
From their manufacturing facility in South Wales, the MS-RT team is dedicated to providing hard working, tough and reliable hand-built vehicles that are crafted and stylised all at an affordable price.
With 20 years of motorsport experience behind it – including the World Rally Championship, Global Rallycross and GT3 Racing – racing forms the backbone of MS-RT’s ethos with all bespoke vehicles created for customers who are looking for the ultimate in unique commercial vehicles.
As part of the partnership, cap hpi consulting will be providing MS-RT with its bespoke valuations service. The bespoke values product gives an accurate, independent value for modified vehicles based on valuable market insight and continuous analysis. The resulting data report gives cap hpi’s view of the additional value modified vehicles achieve over and above a standard specification vehicle of a similar age and mileage.
Chris Blakely, consultant with cap hpi consulting commented: “This is a very exciting new venture and we have formed a true working partnership with the committed team at MS-RT. It is great to see the data we are providing is being utilised in such an innovative way across the business to demonstrate to consumers the value and investment appeal of modified commercial vehicles. Bespoke valuations typically refer to anything beyond our core products data set and are useful for providing valuations on classic cars as well as modified cars and commercial vehicles. They can be used in a variety of ways ranging from fleet valuation or providing a residual value as part of a PCP package from a finance company to settlement and repair costs for insurance providers.”

The used car pricing and technical information that we supply has been trusted by motor trade professionals for more than 30 years.
