A racy Ford Escort RS Cosworth is up for sale at auction and set to go for an eye-watering amount.
The stunning RS Cosworth Lux model has been lightly modified and has even appeared on the cover of Classic Cars magazine.
Originally delivered to Malta in 1994, the ‘Cossie’ was imported to the UK five years later, and it’s covered just 66,808 miles during its lifetime.
The RS Cosworth was released as a homologation special for Ford’s Group A rallying programme.
This particular speedy model has a tuned 2.0-litre petrol engine that produces a whopping 330bhp, while it also has all-wheel drive, which means you can be more confident in slippery rally-style conditions
Finished in Radiant Red paintwork, the incredible-looking RS Escort featured on the front cover of Classic Cars magazine – where it was driven by former WRC winner and Prodrive chairman, David Richards.

Because it’s a ‘Lux’ model, the RS includes features such as electric windows, an electric sunroof and air conditioning, while the black leather seats look fantastic.
As a further bonus, accompanying the sale is the original owner’s book pack, service book, various maintenance invoices and historic MOT certificates.
Collecting Cars, who are handling the sale, said: “This well-maintained example has been fitted with some subtle modifications to further amplify its performance and roadholding capabilities, and would make a great addition to a wider collection of fast Fords.”
The online auction runs until June 11th, although bidders have already declared their interest, with the latest offer at the time of writing being an eye-watering £33,350.
