Ford Escort RS Cosworth

Ford Escort RS Cosworth

Postby Mark1GTE » Thu Jul 27, 2017 11:07 pm

Been looking for a new show car to add to my small collection and with 2017 being the 25th anniversary of the Escort RS Cosworth I thought it was time I bought myself one 8-)

So earlier this week I purchased this rare in Moondust Silver Lux version which I will get out to a TT Breakfast soon, i have big plans for this car and so do some others as I was asked to be part of something big today with it but unfortunately at this time I am not at liberty to discuss but watch this space ;)

Hope you like it

Love it. Especially the colour and wheel combo.

Sounds intriguing on the publicity front. Hopefully film of some sort.

Thanks, I genuinely missed my GTE yesterday the Escos is a fantastic car to drive and effortless at overtaking etc but for now I am still smitten with my GTE and really looking forward to Ignition this weekend with it 8-)

No not a film but I am allowed to discuss this now

I was asked by the NEC / Wheeler Dealers if I would bring my car to the NEC Classic Motor Show in November to be used by Mike & Ant on the WD Live Stage during the show which I think I am also part of (some questions about my car) it will also be the star car at the after hours UK premiere event of the new Wheeler Dealers series being shown at the NEC which kicks off on Discovery with an extended Escort Cosworth episode on New Years Day

Well my weekend at the NEC with the Wheeler Dealers Mike & Ant didn't go exactly to plan as my Wife fell very ill with a brain illness a few days before the event :cry: however I did send the Cosworth down to Birmingham and I made it there for a few hours on the Sunday

I will let the pictures tell the story

My turn to drive on stage and be interviewed, Mike drove it on the days I was absent

Legendary Car Designer Frank Stephenson

He also signed my car (Ant photographed & video'ed him doing this for me, top man)



Image


Bumped in to Salvage Hunter Drew Pritchard back stage, he was asking if I would sell my car



Image


Some media this week about the UK release of the new series with my car in it, also on a Video interview with Mike 8-)
