Product Code: C3326
Originally a 1984-1986 4-wheel drive Group B rally car, the famous Ford RS200 was extensively used in rallying and rallycross and can still be spotted in competition today. The car was soon replicated as a standard road car as demand grew from motoring enthusiasts who wanted road going versions. Many kit-car businesses have reproduced this iconic competition car from road use as well as for continued competition after Ford ceased production.
Power came from a 1.8 litre, single turbocharged Ford Cosworth "BDT" engine producing up to 450 horsepower (340kW) in racing trim. Although the RS had the balance and poise necessary to be competitive, its power to weight ratio was poor by comparison, and its engine produced notorious low-RPM lag, making it difficult to drive.
This particular RS200 was a factory supplied car sent to Spain in the mid-1980s for Carlos Sainz to practice with 4WD cars. It was also driven by Antonio Zanini and Jesús Puras This car went on to win many of the rallies it entered.
