A stunning 90 Spec Ford Escort RS Turbo with 43,980 miles from new.

EQUIPMENT
Body coloured bumpers with black insert, body coloured wheel arch extensions, 90 spec tailgate spoiler, halogen headlamps, front driving lamps, cooling vents in bonnet, central door locking, remote body coloured door mirrors, heated rear window, front windscreen rapid de-ice, dual-tone horn, tailgate wash/wipe, tinted glass, quartz digital clock, aerial incorporated in rear windscreen, Recaro front reclining seats, 60/40 split rear back rest, soft feel sports steering wheel, tilt/slide glass sunroof, tachometer, electrically operated front windows, heated door mirrors. Dealer accessories; Mud flaps, headlamp protectors, Ford tailored rubber mats, Scorpion alarm.

EXTERIOR
Finished in ever desirable Diamond White, (Code B3), this spine-tingling RS Turbo looks fantastic with all factory panels straight and undamaged and the paintwork boasting a bright shine. The desirable 90 Spec enhancements such as the face-lift front bumper and rear spoiler are exactly as Ford intended, as is the rest of this unspoilt example with all Carello lights, Ford lens clusters and factory etched glass still fitted. Correct decals, driving lamps and aerodynamic aids remain in excellent condition. There is slight delamination to the bottom of the front screen. Ford main dealer rear screen sticker and number plates are fitted and virtually unobtainable genuine Ford headlamp protectors still remain to reveal the care this remarkable example has enjoyed. A brilliant and iconic Fast Ford.

INTERIOR
This late S2 RST has a near perfect interior which remains exactly how the manufacturer intended. The fully adjustable supportive Recaro seats show no wear having been fitted with seat covers protecting the ' Zolda ' fabric which is grey, red and blue (Code LW). Matching door cards are pristine with only very light markings to the interior door handles whereby age-related deterioration is a known weak point. The carpets are still protected by the rubber Ford waffle over-mats. All switches, knobs and dials function correctly and the original Ford Keycode stereo radio/cassette remains fitted with factory speakers. The boot area is spotless and houses the genuine jack and wheel brace and there are factory dot stickers to the boot floor.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 1.6 OHC (CVH) fuel injected engine with a Garrett AiResearch T3 turbo charger and intercooler is completely factory standard making this vehicle a rare unmolested example. Producing 132bhp it gives a 0-60mph dash of 8.2 seconds and a top speed of 128mph and having covered just 43,980 miles from new is still fun. The car has just benefited from a full major service including cambelt, water pump, pulleys and tensioners all using genuine Ford parts with corresponding invoices. The engine bay is remarkably clean with factory plates, stickers, inner wing stamps and an unpainted slam panel data plate. The genuine Ford Carello headlamps still have the stickers to the back of the units but the chrome has aged along with the bonnet turbo heatshield. A factory original exhaust system remains fitted. The 5-speed manual Ford BC box with standard 220mm clutch is light, precise and a joy to use.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The correct light alloy 6X15 RS wheels remain undamaged and in superb order. Matching 195/50 R15 Uniroyal Rainsport 2 tyres are fitted and having covered few miles are showing masses of tread. The spare still has the factory Uniroyal item and due to age is for show purposes only. This Hot Hatch slows as well as it goes with the ABS braking system designed in conjunction with Lucas Girling working perfectly.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new by Ford Main Dealer, Greyhound of Accrington, the car was registered on 15th August 1990 as one of the final Series 2 RS Turbos and on a H registration. The mileage of 43,980 is fully verified with every MOT certificate dating back to the very first in 1993. The original Ford document pack holds all handbooks and point of sale literature and all keys are present including the working torch key as well as the special RS Turbo sales brochure. A collection of service invoices and receipts including the major service in October 2019 completes the impressive history file. KGF Classic Cars sold the car in 2013 and upon being offered the car back were delighted to see its return knowing how difficult it is to find excellent, low mileage and unspoilt examples.

This is an iconic Fast Ford preserved exactly as intended and wanting for nothing.

MOT October 2020, HPI Clear.
