The Car

Ford Escort, this is a name few people don't recognise, but what some don't know is that this was once the King of Rally!

Rallye Sport. That’s what Ford’s RS moniker stands for, and the Escort wears the letters more proudly – with greater credibility – than most, because it’s arguably the greatest off-road racing car of them all.

The RS1600 was announced in 1970 and was the successor to the Escort twin cam. As the Ford Escort was developed through the 1970s, the 1.6-litre 16-valve RS Escorts were enlarged, first to 1.8 and later to 2.0-litres. By 1975, RS1600s had won world-class rallies including the British RAC three times in succession between 1972 and 1974.

Starring in the Fast and Furious 6 film, our RS is now destined as a firm favourite of car lovers old and new.
