THE DEVIL’S IN THE DE­TAILS

Fast Ford - - S2 Rs Turbo -

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.
