  7. Re: Rs200

    yes, the 500bhp, short wheelbase S1, driven by walter Rohl and Michelle Mouton. They made a very nice homologation version for the road.

    Hi Guys

    About these Rs 200s... out of the 200 that ford made , Ford did make 24 evolution models only.. which were very highly tunned, some were tunned to 600+bhp

    In england we still have a few of these car on show @ the rs national day...

    i know of a couple that are tunned to 700+bhp , 1 is owned by Pat Duran and still races his an another guy called Julian Godfrey...

    i think all the Group B rally cars were something to be admired.. as it was man and machine in perfect harmany ....and something that ralling won't see again..

    the reason why these group B rally cars were banned is simple as the Group B cars (most 450bhp)were too fast, more and more spectators than ever before .. it wasn't only the Rs 200 that killed a few people . it was other group B cars aswell .. The Rs200 was the last car to hit spectators.so FISA decide to ban these great cars for the safty for driver and spectators

    I have a picture of Pat Durans Rs200 evo
