Footnotes

  • Reviving the name of an illustrious forebear, the RS2000 brought a much-needed injection of high performance to the new Escort range on its arrival in the autumn of 1991. The revamped MkV Escort, introduced the previous year and perceived as worthy but dull, had received a less than enthusiastic response from the motoring press, so the addition of the RS2000 to the line up provoked sighs of relief, demonstrating that Ford has not lost sight of its sporting heritage. 'The Champ is Back' Ford's advertising proudly declared. Front-wheel drive like the rest of the MkV range, the new RS2000 was powered by the 2.0-litre, 16-valve engine found in the rear-wheel drive Sierra. Four-wheel disc brakes and up-rated suspension also went into the package, and with 150bhp on tap the RS2000 was good for over 130mph, with the 0-60 dash achievable in little over 8 seconds.

    One of reputedly fewer than 240 examples of this collectible modern Ford currently on the road, this Escort RS2000 comes with partial Ford and private garage service history (some stamped). Currently displaying a total of 91,875 miles on the odometer, 'M71 AOO' is described by the vendor as in generally good/very good condition, some minor paintwork imperfections and broken sun visor clips being the only faults notified. The car is offered with service booklet, ten expired MoT certificates, current road fund licence, MoT to July 2014 and Swansea V5C document.
