Known History

1986 FORD SIERRA RS COSWORTH

By the mid 1980s Ford were no longer competitive in touring car racing as the Capri was outpaced by Rovers Vitesse, amongst others.The Sierra range did not contain a high performance model and Ford Motorsport had spent very little time trying to develop the car.

Cosworth had designed and built a 16 valve twin cam conversion to fit the 2 litre Pinto bottom end which was intended as an aftermarket normally aspirated engine which could replace the BDA.

It was Ford Motorsport Director, Stuart Turner, who conceived the idea of putting a turbocharged version of this engine into the Sierra. In order to homologate the car, he then persuaded Fords bosses to sanction the building of 5000 cars. The Sierra RS Cosworth was duly homologated by the FIA in Groups A and N on 1st January 1987 and went on to become a dominant force in Touring Car racing around the world, especially once the RS500 evolution version appeared later that year.

This is an original three owner car showing under 30000 miles. Supplied new by RS Dealer Vospers of Plymouth and remaining in Plymouth until 2009 when purchased by the second owner, a Scottish collector. Original service book stamped by Vospers up to 24000 miles, contained in Ford wallet with the original handbooks. It also still sports a set of Dunlop D40 tyres on the original wheels.

Great condition with no signs of abuse or damage.
