Estimate: £65,000 - £75,000 +buyer's premium of 15% including VAT @ 20% -A UK-supplied RS500 originally registered to its first owner, Cameron Hall Developments Ltd in August 1987 -Sold to its second owner in 1990 and now showing a believed genuine odometer reading of just 35,909 miles -Supplied with a UK V5c with apt registration ‘E500 ARG’ and MOT’d until 26th February 2020 -The most revered of all the Cosworths…...the RS500 The original Ford Sierra RS Cosworth was the first Ford to wear the Cosworth badge and was presented to the public at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1985. It was introduced as a means of homologating the Sierra for 'Group A' Touring Car racing, with a requirement that 5,000 cars were built and sold. Launched for sale in July 1986, and based on the three-door Sierra body-shell, it was designed by Ford's Special Vehicle Engineering (SVE) and was powered by a Cosworth-designed 2.0-litre turbo engine of now legendary repute. At this time, the Sierra Cosworth was a new kind of performance car - a ‘blue-collar hero’ able to humble true sports cars! In total 5,545 cars were produced - of which 500 were sent to Aston Martin Tickford for conversion to the Sierra ‘RS500 Cosworth’. If the RS Cosworth was a homologation car, the RS500 was an evolution special. Once Ford had built the requisite 5,000 RS Cosworths, Group A rules allowed an upgraded 'evolution' model to be launched. This could carry changes focused on improving its racing potential, provided Ford sold 10% of the original number as road cars, hence the 500. The RS500 was announced in July 1987 and had a mechanically uprated Cosworth engine (more similar to the one to be used in competition), with power boosted to 224bhp, upgraded brakes, modified bodywork and the caché of being hand-assembled - the RS500 really is the ultimate 1980's Fast Ford! Indeed, during the model’s 30th anniversary year in 2017, the RS500 was named the ‘Ultimate Cosworth’ by one of the UK’s biggest one-make car shows. This stunning, UK-supplied, right-hand drive RS500 was finished in Black and delivered through Reg Vardy Ltd to its first owner, Cameron Hall Developments Ltd, in August 1987. It remained with its first owner until August 1990 when it was purchased by a Mr Patrick Town of Huddersfield. In his ownership, the car led a cossetted life and usage was kept to a minimum. Sadly Mr Town fell ill and passed away and hence the majority of the history file is not present. In November 2016, at which point the car had covered 35,822 miles, it received a new fuel pump, spark plugs and engine oil service. Although we can’t warrant the mileage, we believe the current odometer reading of 35,909 miles to be correct and commensurate with its overall good condition. Supplied with a UK V5c, an MOT until 26.2.20 and an RS500 brochure, these 1980s Fast Fords are becoming increasingly sought after and interest shows no signs of abating anytime soon.
