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.

Escort RS Cosworth Price Watch

The Escort RS Cosworth first appeared on UK streets back in 1992, and remained in production for four years, with Ford finally pulling the plug in 1996.

The ‘Cossie left a lasting impression with many young men, and being one of those myself (writes Joe), it’s always been right at the top of my ‘Must Have’ shopping list of cars.

Over the years, we’ve seen the values drop to near 4 figures, but in 2013-14 values seem to have been rising steadily, so we put this blog together to track the rise and rise of Cosworth values.

With classic car values increasing across the board, Good Shout Media predict that we’ll be seeing the £100,000 Escort RS Cosworth at an auction near you in the not too distant future…

We’ll update this blog as and when we spot Escort RS Cosworths prices creeping up in the private market, as well as at notable auctions, or at the intervals listed below.
