1988 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500

In total, 500 versions of the Ford Sierra RS Cosworth were needed to homologate the Evolution model in British and European Touring car racing. They were all converted by Tickford Engineering (this being number 455 out of 500) and featured a more powerful 224bhp engine as well as many aerodynamic tweaks to the bodywork which included much larger spoilers and cooling ducts front and rear.

This car has recently had a £4000 service, which included all fluids, belts, and a new battery. The mileage is just 6000 and the car remains untouched. RS500 Registrar, Paul Linfoot, says it is one of ‘the most original and best available RS 500s’ in the world today.

Sold for: £112,500
