From: UK Car: Mk2 Orion We ab­so­lutely love an Orion around here, and with fewer and fewer of them on the roads th­ese days, it’s truly a plea­sure to see a nicely-fin­ished ex­am­ple of the booted Mk4 Es­cort on the scene. Kieran’s Orion has been prop­erly mod­ded in the old­school style too, giv­ing us all sorts of happy mem­o­ries of 1990s car park cruises! We’re look­ing at the clas­sic RS Turbo con­ver­sion, which has had its head re­built and is now run­ning Cos­worth man­age­ment. Con­tin­u­ing the Cossie theme, you’ll find a set of Re­caros in­side which once called a Sierra RS Cos­worth home, while the coolest el­e­ment of all is that bodykit: it’s no af­ter­mar­ket af­fair — no, those who know their retro onions will tell you that this was a dealer- op­tion RS kit. While they never made an Orion RS, the op­tion of an RS bodykit re­ally sharp­ened up the lines — with this fit­ted, you’d have been King of the seafront back in the ’90s!

Kieran’s Orion has been given the clas­sic RS con­ver­sion, right down to the tur­bocharged CVH.
