Ford to bring modified 1995 Ford Escort RS Cosworth.
While almost every one of us had just got first taste of true European fast-Ford goodness with the current Ford Escort RS, Where Europeans and British for decades had enjoyed the Blue Oval’s turbocharged terrors. As indicated that the Ford is bringing a Trailer’s orange 1995 Ford Escort RS Cosworth.
The Ford Escort RS Cosworth had developed in the early 90’s as a homologation special for rally competition. The pint-sized hellion had been Ford’s hardcore version of the contemporary Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and Subaru Impreza WRX STI, especially it has trick all-wheel-drive system which has taken from Ford’s motorsports division.
According to the seller, the car has been trade in to U.S. through the well-known Sun International importers. The body and engine were individually shipped and reintroduced together by Sun.
The Car has originally manufactured for a German dealer by a local tuning shop which has incorporated changes to the powertrain and chassis. The bored-out 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder has earlier been a more powerful Escort; it has modified along with motorsports goodies like “Group A internals,” RS500 turbocharger, Mountune cams, RS500 intercooler, a Group A dump valve and Mongoose has exhaust. No power figures are provided but it’s likely far more potent than the stock 2.1-liter engine which has originally pushed out 227 hp and 229 lb-ft of torque.
To handle this extra initiative, new gear ratios, Sachs clutch, and Quaife differentials had been installed. The suspension was originally reworked by the German tuner as well, now riding on H&R coilovers, and poly bushings. Peek overdue the white aftermarket wheels, and you’ll catch a glimpse of beefy Tarox six-piston calipers.
The car has rarely driven since initial importation in 2000, and in which to bring it back to roadworthiness; the seller recently had $7,000 in work completed. The service included a new turbocharger, hoses, alternator, belts, an intercooler flush, fluids and A/C system recharge.
The car is ready to enjoy, so head over to Bring a Trailer to submit a bid before it’s snapped up.
