Description

A 1995 faceliftcar withnew honeycomb grille, restyled bumpers anda more attractive fasciaFinishedin the rare colour combination of Petrol Blue metallic and aRaven leather interiorDelivered new to its firstowner on 18/12/1995 by Ford RS agent Tristar Tildesley of WalsallThe Luxmodel came with an electric sunroof, electric heated mirrors, heated windscreen, heated washer jets, leather steering wheel, electric windows and carpeted door binsMajor service including cambelt, tensioner, water pump and discs/pads - November 2018Retains itsOE fit steel exhaust and many of its factory Motorcraft suspension labelsJust 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. At thecar's launch in 1994, two models were available, the Club-spec standard car at 21,380 and the 'Lux' version, which included electric windows, heated screen, sunroof, and Recaro seats. Power was up slightly from the Sierra RS Cosworth, at 227bhp, and performance consequently improved. The first 2,500 cars, up to May 1994, suffered from slight turbo-lag, but the next 4,500 were improved, thanks to their smaller Garrett T25 Turbo. In 1995, the RS Cosworth was treated to a mild facelift, receiving a new honeycomb grille, restyled bumpers, a more attractive fascia, and revised alloy wheels. Manufacture continued until early 1996 when emissions regulations forced it out of production. Like pretty much every RS Ford, it was a classic from the moment it arrived on the market.Offered here is an immaculate Escort RS Cosworth Luxmodel in the exceptionally rare colour combination of Petrol Blue Metallic and optional Raven Leather interior. It was delivered new to its first lady owner on December 18th 1995 by Ford RS agent Tristar Tildesley of Walsall and in 1998 it was sold to its second owner. The mileage is still very low at only 25,943and reflects the originality of this unmolested Ford RS legend. The Luxmodel came with an electric sunroof, rear head restraints, electric heated mirrors, heated windscreen, heated washer jets, leather steering wheel, electric windows and carpeted door bins. The original Ford wallet contains all its handbooks and guides, dealership literature and sparekeys including the red master key. Unfortunately the original service book is not present.There is a collection of early MOT Certificates and an invoice dated November 2018 detailing a major service including cambelt, tensioner, water pump and brakes discs/pads and an overall inspection by renowned RS Cosworth expert Harvey Gibbs.This is a very original Escort RS still sporting its OE fit steel exhaust and displayingmany of its factory Motorcraft labels onsuspension components making it a must for any enthusiast or collector desiring a totallyunmolested Cosworth in a very rare colour.You can now book a one-to-one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location Monday to Wednesday betweenbetween Thursday 29thOctober - 12thNovember.
