 In 1985 Ford presented at the Geneva Motor Show the Ford Sierra Cosworth, the sporty and most popular version of its famous saloon, a model that enjoyed a remarkable success when it was put on sale in 1986. They made just over 5,000 Units, many of which finished in rally competitions and circuits in half world.

With the success of this collaboration with Cosworth, two years later in 1987, the Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500, a special version limited to only 500 cars, was given a green light, with better performance and more elaborate aerodynamics. Today, one of those 500 units, goes on sale with only 17,000 kilometers.
That's what the guys say at Silverstone Auctions, which has this unit of the RS500. It is a car that developed in its version of street 224 horses, while in the versions of circuits could happen of 450 hp.

The street version accelerated from 0 to 100 km / h in about 6.2 seconds thanks to a 2.0 turbocharged engine block with a bigger Garret turbo than the standard one.
This particular unit has the number 387 and was in the hands of three customers, but it was the third of them that left it stored in a garage for 26 years.

To the rescue of the Cosworth

In April of this year he was rescued and was ready to take it to auction. To do this, the engine has been opened by replacing all the necessary parts, the brake discs and pads have been changed and the fuel tank that still had remains of the previous fuel.
The interior of the car is in perfect condition, both in terms of upholstery and in the plastics of the dashboard, which do not have any type of marks. It is like fresh out of the factory.

While other Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 are on sale for about 45,000 or 50,000 euros, this is expected to exceed 100,000 euros. It is not easy to find such a car with so few kilometers traveled, and that has to be paid. Let the bid start.
