Offered for sale is a 2.0L 1989 FORD Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth manual coming with a partial history file, this lot's condition scores 81/135. As driven by Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear in 2010. The original Ford Sierra RS Cosworth was the first Ford to wear the Cosworth badge and was introduced at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show as a means of homologating the Sierra for Group A Touring Car racing. The second generation 4-door, Sierra Sapphire Cosworth was assembled in Genk, Belgium, with the UK-built Ford-Cosworth YBB engine. The Sapphire Cosworth was based on a different shell to the original three-door Cossie, and along with its more discrete rear wing, recorded a drag coefficient of 0.33, allowing it to register slightly better performance figures with a top speed of 150 mph and 0-60 in 6.1 seconds compared to the original Cosworth. Famously driven by Jeremy Clarkson during one of their notable challenges, this Cosworth was bathed in glory, and performed (rarely for a Top Gear challenge) as it should. The clip below shows Clarkson's delight that, even at twenty-one years old it could achieve 142mph on the Autobahn, just 8mph less than when new. Presented today with 81,000 miles and what appears to be the original stainless steel exhaust, the car has a box full of history and a fresh MoT issued with no advisories until March 2017. Exterior: 3/5, Interior: 3/5, Engine: 3/5, Transmission: 3/5, Running gear: 3/5, Electrics: 3/5, Vehicle history: 3/5 For a full condition report, view this car on www.classiccarauctions.co.uk/.
