Sierra RS500

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News Analysis -

Still THE most prized of all lat­ter-day per­for­mance Fords with many Blue Oval en­thu­si­asts, the RS500 was built around a new Sierra RS Cos­worth but given a YBD-se­ries Cos­worth en­gine. Gear­box and axle weren’t mod­i­fied, and nei­ther were the brakes or the sus­pen­sion. All 500 cars built by the end of July but to­day the chal­lenge is to find one that’s the real McCoy and not a clone. His­tory is all-im­por­tant, but it’s vi­tal to thor­oughly check any ex­am­ple you’re in­ter­ested in. Colour-wise, black was the most pop­u­lar hue, with 52 Moon­stone Blue and 52 Di­a­mond White mak­ing up the re­main­der.
