A company in the United Kingdom has revealed a comprehensive carbon-fibre body kit for the Ford Ranger, handing the Blue Oval bakkie an aggressive new look.
Motion R says the package includes a new front bumper (with integrated daytime running lights), front wings, quarter panels and rear bumper (framing the stainless-steel exhaust system’s tailpipes), all fashioned from carbon-fibre. There’s also set of 20-inch OR1 concave alloy wheels.
The visual upgrade furthermore incorporates a fully exposed carbon-fibre finish for the redesigned grille surround, front bumper intake and front splitter, as well as the widened wheel arches. The treatment is repeated on the wings with R-branded vents and at the rear with a diffuser and spoiler.
And inside? Well, while Motion R has not released images of the upgraded Ranger’s cabin, it promises it has added carbon-fibre trim for the dashboard and a flat-bottomed steering wheel trimmed in a mix of (you guessed it) carbon-fibre and perforated leather. Quilted leather upholstery, meanwhile, is optional.
From what we can tell, no changes have been made under the bonnet. And we're guessing the aggressive body kit can be applied to pretty much any double-cab derivative (bar, perhaps, the Ranger Raptor).
So, to the price. Although Motion R hasn’t published a figure on its website, a report from Motor1.com suggests the carbon-crazy package will set you back £39 995, which translates to a whopping R770 000 (not including the price of the donor Ranger, of course) at the current exchange rate...
