The Ford Sierra RS Cosworth was launched at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show and was the first Ford to wear the 'Cosworth' badge. Only 5,545 were built to homologate the car for Group A Touring car racing and were based on the 3-door Sierra bodyshell but fitted with a 2.0-litre turbo engine of now legendary repute. It featured a double overhead camshaft, 16-valve engine with a Garret T3 turbo and intercooler, giving a reliable 204bhp which produced a 150 mph top speed and a 0-60 time of just 6.8 seconds.
This UK-supplied, right-hand drive car was supplied new by La Motte Garages Ltd. (Ford) of Jersey on the 12th of January 1987 to its original owner, a Mr Cartwright of St. Hellier, and bore the registration J71000. It lived a very sheltered life on Jersey with the same original owner for decades and was serviced methodically by La Motte 16 times, up to 29,207 miles (now 30,279 miles)
It was UK-registered in 2018 with our vendor, a real Ford enthusiast who wanted the most original example and he found it; accompanied by its original book-pack contents, including stamped service booklet, paperwork, and La Motte invoice for major service at 29,207 miles.
The bodywork is in superb order and the original colour of Diamond White looks fantastic. The mechanicals have all been checked over and no modifications have been made to this factory-original car contrasting with the many similar cars that ended up with modified turbos, suspension, and trim. As such, it is highly collectable today and the Sierra Cosworth has now been recognised as a real future classic, with many experts predicting sustained long-term growth in value - like the limited-edition fast Fords of previous generations.
The indicated mileage is 30,279 and this is backed up by service records, and its commensurate condition. A superb opportunity to own a very special example of a real 'blue oval' icon.
