Absolute Classic Cars are delighted to offer this exceptional and highly original, low mileage, Ford Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth 4x4. A late production, facelift example, built July 1992 at the Genk plant, Belgium, she was first registered to the Ford Motor Company on the 11th September 1992 and looks simply amazing finished in her Nouveau Red Metallic with optional 'Raven' RS Recaro leather interior.
Walking around this 28,800 mile example its clear to see that this Cosworth has been cherished. The bodywork is in fantastic condition she has a deep lustrous shine and only on very close inspection will you find a few age/storage related marks (we're being hyper-critical). Panel gaps are consistent all around the car and all the lenses, clear front indicator / smoked rear lense correct to facelift 4x4 models are scratch and fade free, the colour-coded rear spoiler, correct without the black lip for the very last 4x4's, is perfect and it's great to see that the Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth 4x4 re-gained the bonnet vents found on the early 3 door cars. Her factory fitted 15x7 inch Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth 'Shark Tooth' alloys wear a matched set of period correct Bridgestone ER90 tyres (7mm) and having looked we don't think the spare has ever been out of the boot! Correct in every detail we were equally impressed by the underside of the car, factory Motorcraft stickers still adorn many of the suspension components and for the purest delight, she still has her factory exhaust system!
Stepping inside the car, the first thought is .. 'Time Warp'! Commensurate with the super low mileage, the optional Sapphire RS Cosworth 4x4 Raven leather interior is preserved to the highest level, in fact on opening the door the new owner will still be meet by that 'new car' smell. The 'Recaro' embossed seats look spectacular and are free from any wear and naturally the same can also be said with the condition of the carpets (over-mats fitted), door cards, dash and associated switch-gear. The car comes fitted with a Vecta alarm system (fitted whilst undergoing PDI), telltale LED flashes on the dash, is fitted with a period Sony XR-7040 stereo and CDX-70 6 disc auto-changer and comes with the factory optional electric sunroof. A truly special place to be, the interior of this RS oozes class and sporting intent in equal measure.
Mechanically having averaged just over 1000 miles per year this Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth 4x4 is simply spectacular! On opening the bonnet you're meet with a concours quality engine bay, correct in ever detail. The 1993cc DOHC turbocharged engine fires instantly, the green cam cover denoting that this car features the YBG engine introduced in February '92 and fitted with a catalytic converter / lambda sensors in order that the engine could meet tighter US emission controls. Don't let the thought of being 'eco-friendly' concern you however as when up to temperature the 220bhp engine will still propel the occupants to close to 150mph....where allowed! Driving the car is a real delight, the 5 speed MT75 transmission remains positive and the drive-train feels super tight, further testament to the low mileage.
A review of this Cosworth's history confirms that this car really has led a sheltered life. MOT history, 14 in total going back to 1997 (she was laid-up for a 7yr period) confirm that the car did in fact do the majority of its driving between '92 and '99 and she has only done 3k miles in the last 20 yrs! The box file includes her original dealer pack contains all handbooks, Tax discs, sorn declarations, MOT emission results, she comes with 2 keys, clear HPI report, a multitude of invoices and her service book shows that she has been serviced 5 times, the most recent in October 2017 with the invoice indicating a major service so the new keeper can rest assured that all fluids have been changed - engine, gearbox, differential, transfer box, brake, plus coolant, other service items and an obligatory cambelt change all within the last 200 miles. With its motorsport pedigree, remarkably low mileage, fantastic spec and supporting history file this Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth 4x4 is the true collectors car in ever sense and now ready to be cosseted and enjoyed by her new owner.
