The 1980s provided some fantastic Touring Car racing as the manufacturers’ teams put serious effort into trying to win races with their Group A-spec cars built to a very high standard with serious budgets to match. The Sierra Cosworth comfortably exceeded Ford's wishes, and went on to become one of the most successful Touring Car racers of all time, winning races all over the world.

This, fabulous, RS500 Group A Touring Car has been built by our vendor in recent years using his years of knowledge and experience gained from preparing and driving another front runner RS500 in the Motor Racing Legends Historic Touring Car series. As you can imagine, this car has therefore been built to a very high standard and to a very similar specification to our vendors current Rouse Motorcraft car, which enjoyed an outright win at the 2017 Silverstone Classic along with many other fastest laps and outright wins in recent years.

This example is now finished and ready for the next owner to enjoy the thrills on offer. Our vendor has kindly listed the specification below:
