The number 46 found on Valentino Rossi’s gear now stands on two Ford custom models. We didn’t see that coming!
Ford introduces the VR46 range of vehicles in collaboration with Valentino Rossi’s company VR46. It is a unique version of excellence with a combination of passion and performance. The limited edition of customized Ford Transit and Ranger vehicles is a sight to behold. Each model is limited to 460 in the UK and 460 in mainland Europe.
The multiple Moto GP world champion has never had a problem putting his famous name and racing number on all kinds of products.
What is better than buying a bakkie with the famous number from the 9-time world champion of Tavullia? Let’s see why media made a fuss about it.
The Ranger has custom-made bodywork to stand out on the road and flexible interiors that suit your lifestyle, plus a great that fits those who are passionate about motorsport. The iconic customization combines style and practicality and the fact that it is a limited edition project makes the vehicle unique. And who doesn’t want to drive something unique?
The 3,2-litre double-cab 4×4 flavor in the Ranger has been customized with regard to both design and off-road capability. It has stainless steel dual-exit sports exhaust system 18-inch black alloys wrapped in BF Goodrich all-terrain rubber and off-road suspension.
The VR46 also features all kinds of styling updates, like new front and rear bumpers, attention-grabbing headlights, a bonnet bra, widened wheel arches, satin-black side-bars, a roof-mounted off-road light, a roll-over bar, tail-light guards, a sump guard, a spring-loaded and damped tailgate function and plenty of VR46 graphics as well.
Inside, the beautiful Nappa leather trim is what you first notice, a unique plaque, special sill covers and more graphics applied to the dashboard.
We can only guess how much this conversion costs, but surely, many Rossi fans out there are willing to pay top dollar, whatever the asking price…
