When are classic Escorts not classic? When they are brand new!   

This is the MST Mk2, a completely new car with no Ford badges on it, built from the ground up in Wales. Jonny Smith gets the world exclusive first drive of this MST mk2 tarmac rally spec development car, equipped with 2.5-litre Duratec engine on throttle bodies, and reviews it around the spiritual home of the rwd rally Escort.

The Late Brake Show was invited to visit the MST HQ of Motorsport Tools, which has been selling Escort and rally parts for over 10 years. Jonny saw the bare ‘Escort’ mk1 and mk2 bodyshells being constructed, poke around the MST mk1 that is nearly completed (complete with 270bhp BDG engine) and enjoy a rare day of perfect sunshine in the North Wales mountain roads. It was a good day.

Thanks for watching.
