The Escort RS Cosworth proved that it was possible to follow its legendary 1980s Sierra namesakeA much-admired example from one of the most notable Ford collections in the UKTaken off the road in 1997 with just 13,375 milesfrom new and kept in heated storageAcquired by our vendor from the original owning familyin 2013Recent service, fresh MOT and new battery on 14/10/2020Appropriate registration number L333 COSAmazing originality and condition andhas still only covered 13,802miles from newFast Fords are our thing here at Silverstone Auctions. We love them, and their enthusiastic owners, and occasionally we get a chance to offer an icon from Fords unique motorsport-based past models. The Escort RS Cosworth was an 'homologation special' andits sole role was to incorporate parts that Ford planned to use in their rally cars to ensure successin International Rallying. That success duly followed between 1993 and 1998 in the World Rally Championship for Manufacturers, but the road cars were very rare - with just 2,500 'homologation special'versions made, becoming known as 'big turbo cars' and all capable of 150mph and easilyidentified by the aptly named Whale Tail rear spoiler.This particular Escort Cosworth has been consigned from one of the most notable Ford collections in the UK today, a vendor that we are very proud to deal with. It had beenacquired by him from the original owning family back in 2013, where it had been stored in heated dry storage since 1997 having beentaken off the road with just 13,375 miles recorded from new. Today, having had a fresh MOT and service on 14th October 2020 complete with a new battery, it has still only covered 13,802miles from new.Timewarp cars like this are extremely rare and very difficult to find. There are some slight modifications from new carried out in the period, but when you see the car, which is still finished throughout in its original factory paint and panels, you will struggle to find a better or more original car.One for the serious Blue Oval collector, this is a car thatcan be driven and enjoyed today yet, given its condition and raritywill, almost certainly, provide worthwhile value growth.You can now book a one-to-one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location of Stoneleigh Park (CV8 2LG) Monday to Friday, between Thursday 29th October 12th November. Please contact Nick on 07831 440 158 or [email protected] secure your appointment or to discuss the car in more detail.The health & safety of both our customers and team remainthe utmost priority, we are therefore operating to strict COVID-19 guidelines and full instructions for arrival and inspection protocols will be given when making your appointment.1993 Ford Escort RS Cosworthhttps://youtu.be/ounogGnPF6ofalse
