The left-hand drive Sierra RS Cosworth now offered is a 1987 model finished in Moonstone Blue with Grey cloth trim. Its odometer currently displays c.69,000km (c.43,125 miles) and the fast Ford is described by the vendor as very original and unmolested with the only change being an updated stereo system. He currently rates the bodywork, paint, engine, transmission and interior as “excellent”. Purchased in France and now imported to the UK with all taxes paid we are advised the car has enjoyed just two owners. A model with a great race/rally pedigree, good examples of which are becoming ever harder to find.
Introduced at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show, the Ford Sierra RS Cosworth - the first 'blue oval' product to wear a Cosworth badge - was the brainchild of Stuart Turner and his team. Conceived as a means of homologating the Sierra for Group A Touring Car Racing, the newcomer's three-door monocoque bodyshell was aerodynamically enhanced via a deep front air dam, side skirts and `whale tail' rear spoiler. Powered by a Cosworth-designed 2-litre DOHC 16-valve turbo engine allied to Borg Warner T5 manual transmission, the rear-wheel drive hatchback was credited with developing some 204bhp and 205lbft. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 6.2 seconds and 149.5mph in standard tune, total production of the first generation RS Cosworth is thought to have amounted to just 5,542 cars.
