A wonderfully presented and pleasingly original example of the coveted first generation of RS Turbo.
The Ford Escort RS Turbo was based on the three-door Ford Escort saloon supplied in Diamond White. Equipped with a 1.6 litre unit modified to suit the higher loads and the application of a turbocharger. Computerised fuel injection and engine management incorporating turbocharger boost control were also fitted.
Aesthetically, the RS Turbo was given a distinctive appearance with a body coloured front grill, bumpers and aerodynamic aids, an XR3i spoiler was fitted together with ‘RS Turbo’ decals. The interior was trimmed in a combination of Monza and Cashmere fabrics and XR3i-type Recaro LS bucket seats were fitted as standard. Production was limited to only 5,000 examples and many were modified in period for racing.
This cherished example comes complete with a large history file, original owners manual, stamped service booklet, past MOT’s and fresh MOT.
