1993 Ford Escort RS Cosworth 4×4
Designed as a Group A car for the World Rally Championship, the rare Ford Escort RS Cosworth took inspiration from the fifth generation Ford Escort. Actively competing from 1993 -1998, there were only a limited number of road cars produced for four years from 1992.
With outstanding handling, the Cosworth YBT, created by the Ford Works rally team, was known to have reached just over 1,000 bhp. With a highly tunable turbocharged 1,994 cc, it had a bore x stroke of 90.8mm x 77mm Inline-four engine, with an output of 227 PS in standard trim.
Its Escort body panels and Sierra Cosworth mechanics, housed permanent four-wheel drive, an uprated gearbox, Recaro sports seats and famed ‘whale-tail’ spoiler. Its top-speed of 150 mph comfortably matched its rival supercars such as the Audi Quattro and it consistently outperformed sought-after hatchbacks like the Volkswagen Golf GTI.
Only 7,145 Escort Cosworths were made before production ceased in 1998.
This rare immaculate 1993 Ford Escort RS Cosworth is very hard to find. In excellent condition both inside and out, this 1993 Cosworth comes complete with a full service history and will be a complete thrill to both own and drive.
An all-time favourite of Jeremy Clarkson, there are now only around 500 Cosworths left on the road. This Cosworth is even more unusual because it has had no modifications. It is the original standard car and a 1993 Big Turbo model.
Having covered just over 104,000 miles, it comes with a full service history, plenty of invoices and is HPI clear. Additionally, there are two sets of keys with an immobilizer included. With four previous owners, this Ford Escort RS Cosworth has been well looked after and is in stunning condition.
