FORD ESCORT RS COSWORTH MOTORSPORT EDITION 1992
Here is a very rare opportunity to purchase a genuine Motorsport Escort RS Cosworth.
Having covered only a mere 46,600 genuine miles from new, the car is in excellent condition.
I have owned this car for many years. This particular example has had a sheltered life, as it was purchased new in the island of Jersey thus being the reason for such low mileage, and has spent all of its road going life on said island.
The Motorsport version of the Escort RS Cosworth was designed to be turned into a rally car, and most were. So to find a standard example still in road specification is a very rare thing indeed.
Jersey being a small community means that I know the whole history of the car, including knowing previous owners personally.
Being a Motorsport version, it has some subtle differences from that of standard or Lux trim cars that are much less rare than this Motorsport Edition. Differences include:
- No sunroof
- Lighter body shell
- Cloth interior
- No air conditioning
- Wind up windows
- Fixed rear windows
- Hatch in the boot to access fuel pump
Being a 1992 model year makes this what is known as a BIG TURBO car and one of the 2,500 cars required to meet the homologation requirements to enable the car to compete in the Group A category of the World Rally Championship.
Finished in Diamond White with grey cloth interior, this very rare Escort RS Cosworth Motorsport was delivered new through La Motte Ford Jersey. It is one example of the 'Motorsport' cars produced for rallying that somehow managed to escape its fate of being hurled down green lanes at breakneck speed! It has led a much quieter life as a road car.
There is no sunroof, no air conditioning and very little in the way of sound deadening, all trademarks of a Motorsport car. The odometer reads 46,600 miles; it is a true time-warp example of one of the most desirable Fords of the 1990s.
This example, being one of the rare Motorsport cars, is surely the perfect opportunity to acquire one of the most iconic fast Fords of all time.
It is to be noted that this is one of the earlier cars fitted with the larger Garret T3/T04 Turbo, making it the ideal car for the purist who is looking for an Escort RS Cosworth of the finest calibre. This is a collector-grade example.
