Affectionately known as a ‘Cossie’, the Ford Escort RS Cosworth was developed as a homologation special to qualify as a Group A car for the World Rally Championship. Competing between 1993 and 1998 in the WRC and produced as a road car in limited numbers between 1992 and 1996, the Cossie became a bit of a legend in the tuning world. The 2.0L inline 4 turbocharged Cosworth YBT engine came with 227 PS (167 kW) of power and 220 lb-ft (298 Nm) of torque. Some tuning companies have been known to stretch those numbers beyond the 1,000 horsepower mark.

With about 7,000 units produced over it’s lifetime, the first 2,500 are known as the ‘big turbo’ version. This is due to the Group A homologation requiring 2,500 units to qualify, and Ford chose to use the the big Garrett T3/T04B turbo. The later models or ‘small turbo’ versions switched to the T25 Garrett turbo.
