Synopsis

Ford’s legendary Sierra and Escort RS Cosworths conquered worldwide motorsport, while changing the face of high-performance road cars forever. With turbocharged two-litre engines producing over 200bhp, these four-seater everyday saloons could keep pace with supercars – and their 500bhp-plus circuit-racing counterparts overwhelmed everything in sight.
Even now, Sierra and Escort RS Cosworths are in touch with modern machinery, making them as desirable to keen drivers as they are to classic collectors. The RS500 in particular is a rare beast, commanding prices normally befitting upmarket brands.
Sadly, many Cosworths were stolen, abused, crashed, copied, neglected, and modified, which makes buying one today a task that’s fraught with risk.
To help the would-be RS Cosworth owner, this quick-reference guide acts as a handy pocket-sized companion during the purchasing process. It aims to help buyers select the best car, pay the right price, and avoid the potential pitfalls.
Written by a motoring journalist and long-term Cosworth enthusiast, this one-stop package of great advice includes at-a-glance tips, illustrated in-depth inspection guidance, specifications, notes on modifications, real-world cost considerations, and even checks to help spot a fake.

Independent Reviews

All the mechanical and bodywork problems encountered in buying any secondhand car are covered in fully illustrated and specific detail for the models in question ... Together with tips which include buying at auction, restoration viability, general running and deciding just what the car is worth, these publications can indeed be considered essential guides for anyone considering buying a second hand example of these 'classic' Fords.
Speedscene

This great series of 64 page pocket-sized books just keeps growing ... The author is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about these models, but he clearly wants to help you get the best one possible. Taking his advice is likely to save a lot of grief!
