Guide price: £54000 - £60000. <ul><li>Number '019' of the limited edition 'Motorsport' series</li><li>Delivered new in Italy and formed part of the Nespoli Collection</li><li>Left-hand drive and indicating just over 9,600 kilometres </li><li>These 'Motorsport' editions were very focused and are now highly sought-after</li></ul><p> </p><p>The Ford Escort RS Cosworth proved that it was possible to follow its legendary 1980's Sierra namesake. Just like the Lancia Integrale and Subaru Impreza, this was a Group A rally car for the road - pure and simple. It was actually underpinned by a shortened version of the Sierra Cosworth RS Cosworth's platform and powered by the same 2.0-litre turbocharged longitudinally mounted Cosworth-developed engine driving all four wheels. The car was designed and engineered in Boreham, styled by noted designer Stephen Harper, and ended up being assembled by Karmann in Germany. The potential of the Escort was seen in its first event, the 1993 Monte Carlo Rally, when Delecour and Biasion came second and third respectively. The Escort continued to be very competitive throughout the '93 and '94 season but it was a 'one-off' guest drive by Tommi Makinen that provided the win on the 1994 1000 Lakes Rally. Importantly, and true to Ford's grassroots philosophy, the Escort Cosworth provided a platform for National Rallying and Club enthusiasts throughout the world to enjoy 'off the shelf' competitive support.</p><p>This, left-hand drive, limited Motorsport edition (number ‘019’), Escort RS Cosworth is finished in Ash Black with a grey cloth interior and was delivered new to the Nespoli Collection in Italy (it changed ownership once but has remained in the collection until earlier this year). There is no sunroof, but the car features electric windows and air conditioning as well as the desirable OZ racing wheels, still shod with their original Pirelli P Zero tyres. </p><p>The odometer currently reads just over 9,600 kilometres which, given the super condition of the car, may well be correct and it comes complete with its Ford tools and all the normal books and manuals, including the service record, and cancelled Italian registration documents. Coming to auction with a NOVA completed, this is a very special Fast Ford which presents a rare opportunity for an astute buyer. </p>
