The motor is a Cosworth “200” sourced from a 1992 Ford Escort RS Cosworth and rebuilt with less than 1,500 kms.

Other features include a RS500 intercooler, Pro-Ride aluminum radiator, Samco silicone cooling hoses, aluminum fluid reservoirs, carbon fiber timing cover, Ford competition spark plugs and wires, Stage 2 electronics and computer chip rated at 330 horsepower, and fuel pressure gauge.
Power is sent through the Borg Warner T5 5 speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential. Ventilated, slotted, and cross-drilled rotors have been added up front along with rebuilt calipers.

Ford Europe made its makers proud with this special edition Sierra RS Cosworth, a model never offered in North America. The lines are classic, cool. All the funk of the American models were resolved with this European form. The rear wing begs for attention while the rest of the body is quite basic, appealing for its simplicity. Open the hood and marvel at the work put into this build. All high quality parts and well done work.
For those who know Ford Cosworth, this is no ordinary Cossie.
