    IF ANYONE OF U GUYS LIVE IN LONDON AND U KNOW CHELSEA, U MIGHT HAVE SEEN THE WHITE RS200 PARKED UP. IT WAS THERE FOR ABSOLUTE AGES AND IN THE END IT JUST ROTTED. THEY ARE SOME SAD PEOPLE IN THE WOTLD TO LEAVE A CAR LIKE THAT TO ROT

  3. Re: I Actually Own One

    Just gotta clear up a few errors

    Focus RS - already being produced, FWD 2.0 litre Turbocharged I4 with 215hp, supposed to be in the same class as the Impreza WRX STI, but doesn't perform nearly as well

    Focus FR200 (I.E. Focus Cosworth) - FWD 2.0 litre Turbocharged concept with 300hp.

    the focus is shit always will be 200,00 were recalled because of a engin prob if you stayed at 80 for too long the speedo would drop to 0mph and if you applied the brakes it would cut the engin out so the power steering was not working you had to restart the engin via key. its all true i saw it all on watch dog uk its only happened to uk spec cars i think.



    The rs2000 stands for rally sport 2.0l il4 it was one down from the cosworth.

    RS2000: 1998cc in line 4 150bhp@6000rpm 0-60 max t/speed year
    8.2sec 129mph 91-96

    RS cosworth T3: 1993cc il4 227bhp@6250 5.9 144mph 92-94

    RS cosworth T25:1993cc il4 227bhp@5750 5.7 144mph 95-97



    my fav cosworth, the best in the world tuned by tickford aus

    Ford sierra RS500 Cosworth: 1993cc 224bhp@6000 0-60 in 6.1sec and a top speed of 153mph down hill it'll do 160mph from a 2.0 thats good for standard made 1987 only most sort after in moonstone gray


    even the 2.9 cosworth granada is slower i repeat 2.9 V6


    i dont have C.A.D so its quite hard to make non-cartoony but could you give me any opinions about these truth will not hurt my feeling its just a bit of fun!!

    Aparrently U can pay Ford 2 build one for around 50k. Beats buying a used one for the same price
     
  9. Exactly.

    However, 8 of those 200 were used for Group-B rallying, 40 dismantled for parts for the rally cars, which are now sold to people who own RS200's. Therefore 152 were sold to the public. Some of which had 300hp, some of which had 400hp, and the rest (very few) had 700hp.
     
  10. Guys, please stop posting bulls@$t on these forums, it wastes everybody's time. Ford was not giving these cars away, in fact, the engines alone in these cars were about $30,000: drivers had to take out bank loans just to get the funding for the engines. If you think that was bad, consider this: the engines were designed to last only about 10 hours on full throttle.
    The reason Ford only made 200 was because that was the minimum production count for the car to be elegible in group B. If you read the stats on the RS200 Evolution, you'll see that it was in the Guinness Book of World Records for 12 years for being the fastest-accelerating production car.

    Once again, please, if you don't have anything useful to say, don't say it at all.
