THE DEVIL’S IN THE DETAILS
While Cameron’s RS Turbo may appear relatively stock at first glance, there are myriad sneaky Easter eggs hiding inside. For starters, there’s a covert invasion from Vauxhall, Ford’s Luton nemesis, manifesting itself in the form of the Calibra Turbo pistons within the Zetec as well as the shade of Vauxhall matte grey paint on the wheels. Switching back to Dagenham, there’s also a plethora of influences from the iconic Fiesta RS Turbo, from the EFI conversion to the flywheel, while the Focus RS donates its spark plugs and head gasket. The gearbox has been pilfered from a Ford Ka ( but bolstered by the RST LSD, naturally), and behind those refinished wheels you’ll spot a brake setup brewed from bits of Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworths of both 2WD and 4WD variants. Cameron’s taster-menu strategy is key to his thorough optimising of the retro RS Turbo format to transform it into a 21st- century bruiser.
