A fully restored classic Ford Sierra RS Cosworth is up for auction and is expected to fetch a mammoth price.
The 1987 ‘Cossie’ has 115,000 miles on the odometer and should be of great interest to fans of fast Fords.
This example is a UK delivered right hand drive car, painted Moonstone Blue Metallic and fitted with the correct 15″ Lattice alloy wheels.
The first owner kept the legendary engine for 15 years and clocked up 90,000 miles – including various road trips from the UK to France.
The car recently underwent an extensive restoration by Voycetune, with numerous photos showing the detailed work.
Collecting Cars said: “The Ford Sierra RS Cosworth is a popular hot hatch from the 1980s that achieved notable success in motorsport…”
“This particular car gave great pleasure to its first owner and has recently undergone a meticulous restoration.
“With its compelling history and remarkable condition, this would be an asset to any collection of fast Fords or modern classic icons.”
The Sierra RS Cosworth was the first Ford to bear the ‘Cosworth’ badge and was launched as a motorsport homologation model.
It was also the first production car to produce over 100 hp per liter.
Under the hood is a 204 hp 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine with a five-speed manual transmission.
This particular RS Cosworth appeared on the cover of Classic Ford Magazine in July 2010 and has also been used for various Cosworth buying guides.
Collecting Cars remarked: “The car comes with the handbook, RS Cosworth supplement, owner’s manual, sound system manual, stamped service record, dealer directory and even original 1980’s press material on the Sierra RS Cosworth.
“There’s also a huge history folder with papers documenting old TÜV certificates as well as a number of invoices and receipts from the period.”
The auction ends on Sunday May 21st. The latest bid at the time of writing was £42,000.
