FORD SIERRA COSWORTH EX COLIN MCRAE
The Ford Sierra Cosworth project was initiated in 1983 due to the new FIA regulations about the Groups “A” and “N”. Indeed with a limited run of 5000 cars built in one year it was possible to homologated them. However due to the “Group B” RS 200, building was delayed and the new car was shown at Geneva in March 1985. It was very nice and aggressive with wide track and impressive rear wing. The powerful 204 HP engine was matched to a reworked chassis with refined suspension, brakes and differential. It was fast with 240 km/h as top speed and only required 27sec from start to reach one km. After the 5000 cars building was completed in summer 1986, it was homologated in December. Ford Motorsport allocated some cars to different teams which the best known was Boreham who campained them in WRC. The Group A car never had the expected success as the fabulous 4WD Lancia benefitted from a massive investment, Cesare Fiorio’s cars were very much advanced technologically and won all the championships from 1987 to 1991. However the Group A Sierra is most likely the quickest 2WD rally car ever built. In the mean time factory Group N cars were built, most of them for national championships, during 1987 / 1989 period they were top performers which won many rallies and championships.
