Ford Escort RS1600i A true homologation-special model; rare, coveted and this example is certainly 'best-of-breed' with just 8,156 miles.

Razor-sharp styling, performance to match and only available for three years (1982 -'84)
Standard car had 1,597cc, 115bhp CVH engine with hotter cam, solid tappets, K-Jetronic injection, and twin-coil ignition
The RS1600i has very different front suspension from other Escorts utilising two longitudinally mounted supporting arms with a separate anti-roll bar. These provided for the castor angle to be adjusted, which was required for racing purposes. It also reduced torque-steer effect, which is the problem in powerful front-wheel drive cars.

Registered on the 1st May 1983 and with just a single owner
Rarer than an S1 RS Turbo and arguably more collectable
Finished in Diamond White with an unmarked Shark Grey cloth interior
Converted to Turbo Technics specification by the original supplying Ford dealership, with associated receipts
Supplied with its original book-pack
