![CDATA[
Produced between 1986 and 1990 the Series 2 Escort RS Turbo was in many ways a much better car than the Series 1. New features were adopted for the Series 2 including utilising the 1600cc, fuel-injected CVH engine from the Series 1 Turbo but now fitted with the Garret T3 turbo (water-cooled, unlike the S1). Also included was an improved gearbox, new limited-slip differential, a larger clutch, improved KE Jetronic unit, and an intercooler. The Series 2 car produced an impressive 132bhp at 5750rpm, giving it serious performance with a top speed of 125mph and a 0-60mph time of 8.3 seconds. Although on paper, these figures were a tad down on the Series 1, the new car was considerably easier to drive quickly and, effectively, was a faster car.
This Ford Escort RS Turbo Series 2 is in very good order throughout. The paintwork is presented nicely and the alloys are in great condition with very few marks or imperfections. The interior is also very good; the seat bolster, dashboard and door cards all present nicely. Showing a mere 36,072 on the odometer, the Ford comes complete with a sizeable history file including many old MoT test certificates and invoices for previous maintenance work. A Scorpion exhaust system, Gizzmo boost controller, silicone turbo hose set, AIRTEC intercooler and alloy radiator, APEX lowering kit, performance injectors and a set of suspension polybushes have been fitted to the RS Turbo. There are also rolling road power and torque graphs showing just how strong the engine still is. Reported to be in fine running order, this Escort has been dry stored with Harrisons Storage for the last 18 months, it has been used occasionally by the current vendor and has resided in his private collection. Ready to be used and enjoyed by a new custodian.
