Ford Sierra RS Cosworth

SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

A sensational Ford Sierra RS Cosworth pampered with just 52,356 miles.

MODEL HISTORY
The Sierra RS Cosworth project was defined in the spring of 1983 by the then recently appointed head of Ford Motorsport in Europe. It was established that at the time, Ford was no longer competitive in this area. After receiving full support from Ford Public Relations, the project was underway with the Sierra chosen as the basis for the task ahead. Ford Motorsport in Europe approached the automotive company Cosworth who answered positively, but put up two conditions: The street version of the car had to produce no less than 204 HP, and Ford had to accept no less than 15,000 engines. The project would only need about 5,000 engines, but Ford nevertheless accepted the conditions. The extra 10,000 engines would later become one of the reasons Ford also chose to develop a four door, second generation Sierra RS Cosworth. Few cars have ever been greeted with such enthusiasm as the original Sierra RS Cosworth.

EQUIPMENT
Bodyside mouldings, integral front air dam, colour coded door mirrors, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, bonnet cooling vents, halogen headlamps, integral front driving lamps, colour coded polycarbonate bumpers with black insert, single plane rear wing spoiler, tinted glass all round, central locking, leather gearknob, leather three spoke sports steering wheel, cassette storage, electronic sound system (model ECU2) with power amplifier, tilt and slide sunroof, tachometer with turbo boost gauge, quartz digital clock, graphic warning module, electric windows.

The huge history file contains every MOT and Ford Main Dealer invoice with the last 11 years being annual at John Grose. The previous owner, Mr Parker, has an excellent relationship with Steve Syrett, the Service Director at John Grose. When buying the car over 11 years ago, Mr Syrett accompanied him on every visit viewing a total of eight examples. Eventually and politely he tasked Mr Parker to go and find his perfect car first and he would then view to confirm the credentials. This was the car that ticked every box and was given the seal of approval, much to Mr Syretts relief! The A4 file is brimmed full with paperwork, all neatly filed in chronical order from the original purchase invoice at Bristol Street Motors for £16,704.69 to the latest cam-belt and water pump change at Harvey Gibbs in August 2019 for £438.14. Reading the file will take many joyful hours and offers complete piece of mind.
The Ford grey leather wallet contains all handbooks, guides and dealership literature, and the original stamped service book. All keys are present including a working torch key! It really does not get much better than this.

Registered new on the 12th October 2006 by Ford Main Dealers, Bristol Street Motors of Birmingham, this prime example has covered a remarkable 27,809 miles and two owners from new. The first keeper, Mr Richard Devonport, purchased the car brand new and owned it for 10 months at which point Mrs Gwenda Smith purchased the car. Mrs Smith has owned this ST ever since and her passion for Fords is shared by her fanatical Husband Paul and Son Mark, who own two new Focus ST’s and a low mileage ‘Cocooned’ Escort Cosworth between them. Son Mark is friend to KGF Classic Cars Operations Manager, Steve, since playschool days and the family’s enthusiasm for Ford has always been known!

The most recent service was in December 2018 at 27,010 miles. Further invoices and every single MOT from the first in 2009 are kept along with two Ford keys and an original Fiesta ST150 brochure. Representing the next generation of collectable fast Fords, it is virtually impossible to fault this car.
