Vehicle History


The 'Series 2' Escort RS Turbo was a much more civilised driving prospect with the 1600cc, fuel-injected CVH engine now fitted with the water-cooled Garret T3 turbo and revised engine management. It also benefitted from an improved gearbox, larger clutch and a limited-slip differential

First registered in Germany in November 1988, this RS Turbo S2 was acquired by the previous owner's Swedish cousin in 2001 and remained in the family ever since, spending the last 14 years in Sweden (where it was kept in a heated barn for six months of the year and used in fine weather only) before coming to the UK in 2015. F322 HAK is in very good, original and rust-free condition throughout and has never been repainted or restored. It has covered only 75,617km to date (46,986 miles) with an excellent service record and a large history file to warrant this total.
