DESCRIPTION

As driven by Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear in 2010. The original Ford Sierra RS Cosworth was the first Ford to wear the Cosworth badge and was introduced at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show as a means of homologating the Sierra for Group A Touring Car racing. The second generation 4-door, Sierra Sapphire Cosworth was assembled in Genk, Belgium, with the UK-built Ford-Cosworth YBB engine. The Sapphire Cosworth was based on a different shell to the original three-door Cossie, and along with its more discrete rear wing, recorded a drag coefficient of 0.33, allowing it to register slightly better performance figures with a top speed of 150 mph and 0-60 in 6.1 seconds compared to the original Cosworth.

Famously driven by Jeremy Clarkson during one of their notable challenges, this Cosworth was bathed in glory, and performed (rarely for a Top Gear challenge) as it should. The clip below shows Clarkson's delight that, even at twenty-one years old it could achieve 142mph on the Autobahn, just 8mph less than when new. Presented today with 82,000 miles and what appears to be the original stainless steel exhaust, the car has a box full of history and a fresh MoT issued with no advisories until March 2017. Sensibly guided, this Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a model that is now gaining momentum in the collectors market.
