Based on the success of the previous model (subsequently known as the Series 1), the later Series II Escort RS Turbo (produced between 1986-1990) was more suited to the road, whereas the earlier car was a bit of a 'homologation special'. Many new features were adopted for the Series II including utilising the 1600cc fuel-injected CVH engine taken from the Series 1 Turbo but now fitted with the Garret T3 turbo (water-cooled, unlike the S1), revised engine management settings, lower overall gearing, an improved gearbox and limited slip differential, a larger clutch and improved KE Jetronic unit and intercooler. Suspension and chassis changes included stiffer front and rear springs, uprated anti-roll bars, mechanical ABS and larger brakes. The Series 2 car produced an impressive 132bhp at 5750 rpm, with maximum torque of 133 lb/ft produced at 2750 rpm, giving it ample performance with a top speed of 125 mph and a 0-60mph time of 8.3 seconds.This nice original Series II example has been in private ownership for 24 years. Having been maintained to a good standard, the RS is offered with the original Ford service book and many receipts including bill of sale from dealer Guys in 1995. The shell of the car is very straight with no welding to the body (with the exception of a small repair to the battery tray), and original floors, sills and arch sectionsl. The engine and gearbox are in good order with no tappet noise from cold, a problem common to this model.Finished in Diamond White with grey cloth trim, and with a UK MoT certificate valid to 2020, this is a good honest example of what has become a really desirable 'hot hatch'.
