The best Cosworth
The most iconic performance car of the 1980s is celebrating its 30th anniversary in style, having been named the‘Ultimate Cosworth’ by one of the UK’s biggest one-make car shows.
The Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth pipped its spiritual successor, the Escort RS Cosworth, to the post, securing over 55 per cent of the votes in an online survey carried out by Ford Fair.
A special display celebrating both of the fast Fords will be one of the main features of this year’s show, at Silverstone, this Sunday.
The RS500 was originally developed for homologation purposes to give the eighties’ favourite repmobile, the humble Ford Sierra, a chance to compete in World, European and British Touring Car Championships.
