Evolution of a Legend
Taking the Mk1 to the next level
We have been working on the MST Mk1 Evolution model for the last two years, starting with concept drawings, to clay modeling wheel arch styling.
Extensive development work has also been done on the suspension to accommodate the running of 17” wheels whilst maintaining the amazing handling characteristics of the Mk1. A brand new independent rear suspension system is currently in development, initially designed and tested by the late Colin McRae for his Mk2 Escort rally car.
