M-Sport World Rally Team have unveiled their livery which will adorn the Ford Fiesta R5 WRC‘s of Elfyn Evans and Ott Tänak for the their 2015 FIA World Rally Championship challenge.
The new for 2015 look gives a nod to the past taking inspiration from Hannu Mikkola’s 1980 Ford Escort RS 1800 MKII and the later 1989 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth of Colin McRae.
“When designing this year’s livery we were keen to produce something fresh and exciting whilst celebrating Ford’s long and prestigious standing within the FIA World Rally Championship” said team principal Malcolm Wilson OBE.
“Throughout history, Ford cars have produced some of the most striking colour schemes which became firm favourites around the globe. It’s great to see some of these iconic liveries reflected in our 2015 car – a modern twist tailoring the design to our young and ambitious team.”
M-Sport continue their long-term partnerships, with both Castrol and Michelin playing an important part in the team.
“We continue to enjoy great support from all at Ford, Castrol and Michelin, not to mention our valued trade partners. I speak for everyone when I say that we are all looking forward to the season ahead and to unlocking the huge potential of both Elfyn [Evans] and Ott [Tänak].”
The 2015 livery will be displayed on the main stage of the Autosport International this week before making its competitive debut on the legendary stages of Rallye Monte-Carlo at the end of the month.
