The rear-wheel drive only variant is regarded as the more desirable of the two Sapphire RS Cosworth models due to it being conceived with a more aggressive driving style in mind (and a suspension set-up to match).
Finished in Diamond White with Grey cloth upholstery, this particular 2WD Sapphire RS is said to have an 'excellent' interior which still incorporates the 'original radio/cassette and amplifier'. The bodywork, paintwork, five-speed manual gearbox and 2-litre turbocharged engine are all noted as being in 'very good' condition and the vendor further inform us that they are "all still to standard specification". However this does exclude the exhaust which had to be replaced with a stainless steel unit after its c.18 years in storage, this was due to the original mild steel units being very hard to source.
With the registration number still etched in all the glass, this late 2WD low mileage Cosworth is supplied with a current V5C showing its low ownership and a current MOT.
