This is the first ever Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 built, chassis number one and is the only RS500 to be built by Ford rather than Aston Martin Tickford. This car has the potential to achieve a record breaking sale price when it is sold by Silverstone Auctions this May.Price estimate is between £90,000 and £120,000 for what is considered to be the RS500 ‘Holy Grail’.
Years ago I had the fantastic opportunity to ride in the front passenger seat of an Americanized Merkur XR4TI as it was being driven by the inimitable Bob Bondurant … and I was duly impressed.
The Sierra Cosworth RS500, however, is an entirely different beast and would eat that thing for breakfast. This is a rally car.
Ahh, dreams, eh.
