Footnotes

  • The car offered here is a limited edition version of the Ford Sierra developed by four-time British Saloon Car Champion, Andy Rouse, and his company, Rouse Sport. A run of 100 was planned but only 67 were completed: six two-wheel drive 302-R models and 61 304-R four-wheel drive cars like this one. Rouse Sport's conversion added £4,450+VAT to the standard car's price, making it the most expensive road-going Sierra Cosworth. A unique body kit - bumpers, side skirts, and a larger rear spoiler - plus 'Rouse Sport' badging were distinctive features, while the wheelarches were extended to accommodate wider tyres. Each car's build number was recorded on a plaque fixed to the driver's side 'B' pillar. Inside, the cabin featured more-supportive Recaro front seats and 'Rouse Sport' badging. Most customers opted for leather trim (an extra-cost option) with very few choosing cloth; indeed, this car is the only cloth-trimmed example known to the Rouse Sport Owners' Club.

    'H91 AGU' was first registered on 4th April 1991 by Ford main agent, Bristol Street Motors of Bromley, and used as a company car by one of BSM's directors until March 1993. By that time it had covered some 19,000 miles and been serviced by BMS on four occasions. The Sierra was then sold as a Ford 'A1' approved used car to a Mrs Bateman of Sevenoaks, Kent, with ownership passing in 2007 to her son (at the same address) and three years later to the current owner.

    Substantial renovation had been carried out by the previous owner over the winter of 2010 with no expense spared. This included overhauling the cylinder head, engine bottom-end, and turbocharger; repairing the headlining; and refurbishing the wheels, which were re-shod with new tyres. Parts renewed included the clutch, oil pressure switch, actuator, windscreen, and fuel tank. Since 2010, the Cosworth has formed part of the vendor's private collection and seen relatively little use.

    The car is offered with full service history including Bristol Street Motors' original bill of sale; Rouse Sport's original order; the original owner's handbooks and wallet; and sundry receipts and other documents verifying the circa 100,000 miles covered from new. It also comes with MoT to November 2018 and a V5C document.

    Finished in Moonstone Blue metallic, and described by the private vendor as in generally very good condition, this rare sporting Ford would be a significant addition to any collection of modern classics.
