    Yep, for this one. What's wrong with RS200s, RS1600is and RS Turbos anyway?

    Glad to hear it mate, the reason I included those cars was to have a good spread of older and newer classics.

    Re: Favourite RS

    but u missed 1 of the best RS of all times in my eye


    Escort Cosworth but the best classic RS has to be the RS1800 in Gp4 form

    I've always wanted a series 1 RS turbo just like the way they look.

    My dad had an RS1800 road car he almost broke down in tears when he saw how much they fetch today

    Re: Favourite RS

    I have Voted ... 3.1Rs Capri with the 3.4 option please.

    But i would like to have a standard version of all of those listed, just to put away in a heated, dried hanger. So that i can always say .................

    "There will always be a standard version somewhere, so modifiy the rest"


    All time Fav's for me is the Gp5's( Escort/Capri) and for the road I would like a trimmed Rs1700T

    I voted RS200 as it is a real ultimate supercar, but I have to say that the right escort/ capri/ sierra racing cars would still be higher, but I take it you mean in their mass produced state

    MK1 RS2000 gets my vote.

    Modena Green with decals
    GP1 bilstein suspension, brakes, wheels engine and carbs
    4 Cibies
    Custom pack interior

    It was the car I always wanted, so it's the car I restored, I built it exactly how I would have ordered it if I had been able to, only got the engine to finish now, but I have all the parts for that in the garage, and I have got no plans to ever get rid of it

    Well said Clint can't argue with that...wonder if owning one swayed your decision though

    An odd choice probably but it's the RS1600i for me, just love the looks... (and it can always get a better engine dropped in there too!)
