Cosworth is an English engine manufacturer based in Northampton. At Cosworth, (sports) engines are developed that are used both in road cars (Ford Sierra/Escort Cosworth) and in racing cars. The company is known for its long-standing Formula 1 involvement.
The Ford Escort RS Cosworth is a sports derivative of the European Ford Escort.
They were immediately recognizable by their large “Whale Tail” rear spoiler.
The first 2500 examples were rally homologation models. The car was designed to qualify for Group A of the World Rally Championship.
The Escort RS Cosworth as a road car was very limited.
Juha Kankkunen, Ari Vatanen and Stig Blomquist started their racing careers on these cars.
Wanted are the models, as this offered T35, with the Garrett T3 turbine, also known as T35.

This offered Escort RS Cosworth T35 shows up in good condition.
All 4 brakes and the exhaust were renewed and the 4WD runs on an adjustable sport chassis.
The engine had just been serviced and was increased to about 40 horsepower more with reinforced pistons, reinforced valves, a bigger intercooler and a bigger turbo.
Watching the original interieur you see very little typical spots of usage, but over all this car has been taken good care of.
On the roof and the hood a little clear vanish is coming off in little spots what makes this successfull race car even more authentic.
