2. Model History

Ford And Cosworth Together Have Been Synonymous With Success Since 1959, When The 105E Ford Anglia Engine Was Tuned For The Formula Junior Racing. Just Eight Years After This Point, The Ford Cosworth DFV Made Its World Debut In The Dutch Grand Prix, Where The Three Litre V8 Powered Jim Clark And His Lotus 49 To Victory. This Infamous Engine Design Then Went On To Win No Less Than 155 World Championship Races, Thus Making The Partnership Between Ford And Cosworth Rather Special For The History Books. In The March Of 1987, Aston Martin Tickford Was Signed For The Job Of Converting Just 500 Cars And In July 1987 The Car Was Announced To The World And Was Homologated In The August Of 1987. Exactly 500 Of These Improved Powered Cars Had Been Offered, With All Units Offered Purely As Right Hand Drive Versions Destined For The UK Only And If We Fast Forward Thirty One Years Later To 2018, These Stunning, Now Rare Examples Are Of Great Interest To The Purist Of Enthusiastic Collectors On The Global Market Place. This Fabulously Rare Modern Day Classic Celebrated A 30th Birthday Milestone In 2017 And With This, Along With Various Worldwide Publications, This Placed The RS500 Back In The Minds Of The General Public With Our Last Example We Offered For Sale In The December Of 2017 Being Shipped To A Collector In Australia. The Engine Inherent Efficiency Was Boosted By The Garrett T31/T04 Turbo-Charger, That Was Mounted Onto A Special Four Branch High Nickel Alloy Manifold And At The Time Of Testing, Ford Reported Figures Of A Staggering 224 BHP, Which Would Rocket Buyers From 0-60 In 6.2 Seconds And Offer An Astonishing Top Speed Of 153 MPH, Which Was More Than Remarkable Considering The Two Litre Engine Fitted. Due To The Limited Numbers Ever Made, This Collaboration Between Ford And Cosworth Has Now Become Highly Desirable To Today's Avid Collectors/Investors, With Many Wanting Perfect Cars With Minimal Mileage Usage, Low Keeper Changes And Of Course Presented In Total Factory Unmodified Specification, So With This We Expect A Healthy Interest Level On Our Offering.

3. Interior

The Interior Of The Ford RS500 Offered A Combination Of Race Winning Power With Equal Levels Of Comfort, Convenience And Refinement.

The Interior Was Not Only To Offer The Driver And Passenger A Comfortable Environment, But Also With The Fully Adjustable Front Seats, Provided The Lateral Support When Cornering At Faster Speeds, Which At Time Of Build, Made The Total Driving Position Highly Rewarding And Still Today After So Many Years, Offers So Very Much For That Driver To Enjoy.

4. Exterior
