BHP is pleased to offer for sale this rare homologation special. This Ford Sierra RS 500 Cosworth has formed part of a private collection since 1993 and benefits from just 4 former keepers. Supplied by Ford of York on the 11th of September 1987, this car is number 035 of the 500 produced.

Complete with a comprehensive service history and a file of receipts, previous Mot’s or SORN notices, verifying the provenance of this collectable example.

A recommission has recently been carried out as the car has had little use over the last few years.

The car is in excellent condition and drives superbly.

Model History

Mike Moreton was head of the team that planned to develop an evolution edition of the Sierra Cosworth, aimed at making the car unbeatable on the race tracks. In March 1987, Aston Martin, Tickford was signed for the job of converting the 500 cars.

The Cosworth RS500 was announced in July 1987 and was homologated in August 1987.

The main difference to the Sierra three-door Cosworth was the uprated Cosworth competition engine. Its new features were:

·         The engine had a thicker walled cylinder block to cope with the rigours of the track

·         A larger Garrett T31/T04 turbocharger

·         A larger air-air intercooler

·         A second set of four fuel injectors and a second fuel rail (unused in the roadgoing version)

·         Running 224 PS in standard form and capable of running 450 PS in race setup.

·         An uprated fuel pump

·         A reworked induction system to allow higher power outputs to be realised

·         An uprated oil and cooling system

·         The rear semi-trailing arm beam had extended but unused mounting points

The RS500 also had minor external cosmetic differences to its parent the Sierra three-door Cosworth:

·         The rear tail gate had a lower spoiler in addition to the upper "whale tail", which had an added lip

·         Discreet RS500 badges on the rear tail gate and front wings

·         A redesigned front bumper and spoiler to aid cooling and air flow, including the removal of the fog lamps and their replacement with intake grilles to supplement brake cooling
