The Ford Escort RS Cosworth really needs no introduction but to briefly summarise it was a sports derivative and rally homologation special of the fifth generation Ford Escort. This model was available as a road car between 1992 and 1996 and a total of 7,145 cars were built. The first generation which comprised 2,500 cars were built for homologation and these were fitted with the larger Garrett T34 Turbo. The early cars are the more sort after of which this is one being registered in August 1992.

This particular example has been with the last custodian for seven years and during that time it has remained in storage and has covered approximately 400 miles. It has been well preserved and cared for over the last seven years. Prior to that the car was again kept in storage for over 10 years which accounts for the current mileage of 65,951 miles.

The car retains all of its originality including its factory paint which has various blemishes but overall presents very well indeed as the photographs will demonstrate. Equipment includes electrically operated door mirrors, electric front windows, heated front and rear windscreen and washer jets, headlight washers, opening rear quarter vent windows. centre and rear arm rests and rear head restraints, load compartment light, turbo gauge, voltmeter, oil pressure gauge, height adjustable driver's seat, three spoke leather steering wheel, quartz digital clock, glovebox illumination, locking body-coloured fuel cap, central locking,remote tailgate release, spare wheel cover,

The interior still presents very well indeed with a good dashboard that has no cracks whilst the Recaro seats which are finished in the Polaris Grey Hex cloth are still in good condition and just show minor wear in places. The rear seats are in excellent condition. The boot space is in good condition with no marks on the carpet. The carpets are all in good condition having been protected by mats.

Externally the car has body colour front bumper with black lower splitter, louvred bonnet air intakes, wing air extraction grilles, aerodynamic rear wing with lower boot spoiler, Ford RS five-spoke alloy wheeels. The underside of the car remains in very good condition. Overall this is very much a factory original car which is showing the odd blemish but in the main remains in excellent condition after its near 66,000 miles. We cannot warrant the mileage, but knowing how long the car has remained in storage and looking at the originality and condition of the car the mileage looks to be correct.

The engine starts on the button and pulls well with no smoke and the gearbox goes through the gears without issue. The last cambelt change was in September 2017 when the mileage stood at 65,747 miles.

The history file contains the V5 and miscellaneous invoices including the latest cambelt change. The car has had 6 keepers in total. Fast Fords of any description have been in vogue for quite some time which is why values of these rare Cosworth powered Escorts continue to climb in value. This car has lots of appeal given its originality which even includes the water bag from the injection kit as well as the fitted brick size mobile phone holder! The trajectory of values remains on an upward course and this relatively low mileage car provides the perfect opportunity to grab an early Escort RS Cosworth that should deliver further valuation upside over the coming years.
