Published November 9, 2015
True auto enthusiasts worldwide may develop an itch to travel to the UK in anticipation of a large and extremely rare collection of Euro Fords going to auction. Silverstone Auctions is gearing up to sell at least eight iconic Ford models at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show.
The collection includes three Cosworth models, lovingly referred to by the British as “Cossies.” The oldest is a 1987 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 that is one of only 56 such cars sold in the UK as Evolution models in white. An all-wheel-drive 1993 Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth with just over 20K miles and a 1996 Escort Cosworth carrying just 7,700 miles that produces 225 hp and 229 lb·ft of torque finish out the Cossies.
Other impressive members of the collection are a 1985 Ford Escort Turbo Series described as being in “Concours/factory-fresh condition” and a 1970 Capri RS2600. The Escort has only 5,568 originial miles and the Capri is one of just three factory prototypes.
