Nightlight | Chilling Fiesta

Night-Import: Photography by Rich Mckee


If you live in the UK, this ride should look familiar because of its feature on the well known UK car magazine, Max Power. It was listed under the 'Best of British' and was recognized for its unique Yellow and Black body work and much more.
For those who are not familiar with the magazine or the ride, let me introduce you to Alexander Tsirtsikos's Ford Fiesta RsR, a ride that's been going through a lot of changes and ending up being one of the most unique looking Fiesta's out there today.


First of all, is this Ford Fiesta comparable to others when it comes to the body paint?
Heck no!
There was a reason why Alex's ride got featured when it was Black and Yellow.
The fame and recognition didn't stop, but continued with the help of Elite Bodyworx.
This year, the Fiesta went through a complete makeover, being fully resprayed to VW Flange Grey, a slick but shiny color, looking spectacular and even better with the scenery.


Ford Fiesta RsR was only imported to the UK, which is a bit different from the Fiesta's we have in the States. Alex went with the whole RsR body kit (side skirts, custom rear bumper, and spoiler) and added a lot more 'extras' to give it a bit more spice.
The photo is a closer look into the paint.


The wheels are Escort RS Cosworth's 16x8.5 (unknown offset) and powdercoated in White, a balancing combination with the body color. If you take a closer look into the wheels, the outer lips were polished to make those stretched tires more revealing. The overall fitment is on-point, but I'm hoping Alex goes on coilovers to slam the ride :)


The ride is looking clean!


Not a suprise to see Alex supporting Fatlace. Definitely a great organization and known around the world. That Hellaflush sticker should be a hint to our Night-Import fans.
Also, a EliteBody Worx decal, the company who did the body work.

As mentioned earlier, the RSR version of Ford Fiesta was only imported to the UK; not a LHD, but RHD.
The stock audio system was taken out and swapped to some Pioneer and Vibe products for that extra bass and clear sounds.


I have to admit the body work on this Fiesta is flawless. Probably one of the best and unique paint jobs I've seen in awhile, especially on a Ford Fiesta, which you don't come by too often.


Props to our photographer Rich McKee for always supporting our site and bringing us awesome rides to feature.
