Escort RS Cosworth Replica Watch #2

For some reason, we quite like the idea of an Escort RS Cosworth Replica, so every now and then when one pops up, we’ll blog about it.

(You can see all the other posts in this blog series by clicking here) Seen one for sale? Tell us about it and we’ll feature it on the blog!

This Escort Cosworth Replica looks like it has potential. With a genuine XR3i underneath the Cosworth skin, it has a little bit of kudos anyway…

Either way, at £3300 it seems cheap to us.
