Sierra Cosworth RS500 – Buy one

Sure. A top speed of 154mph and a 0-60 mph of 6.2 seconds may not sound supersonic by todays standards, but in 1987 (when D and E reg cars were around) something amazing happened – 500 Sierra Cosworth cars rolled off the production line. They were very special and had 224bhp a lot for 1987. There’s more information here but you can see one below in a car showroom back in 1987. Only a few RS500’s were made, making them very sought after.  Note the price..

One has just come up for sale. It’s been in storage for the last 10 years and is in absolutely mint condition. You can get more info here or buy it for… 25K. Yep, a little more than 1987 but this is a classic car. Many readers and will no doubt hold very special memories the the whole XR3i / RS Turbo / Cosworth era..
