YOU Can Own The Best Version Of The Ford RS200

Ford built just 24 RS200 Evolutions in 1986 to homologate the car for competition in Group B rally. As you probably suspect, these cars are highly desirable and almost never come up for sale. Well, if you’re in the market, today’s your lucky day. There’s one up for grabs on Bring a Trailer right now.

How does an RS200 Evolution differ from the standard car? In addition to an uprated suspension, better brakes, and specific 16-inch Speedline wheels, Evolutions got a bigger, more powerful 2.1-liter Cosworth-built turbocharged four-cylinder engine that made around 600 horsepower from the factory. If the normal RS200, with its three limited-slip differentials and straight-cut gears, is a handful to drive, we suspect the Evolution is several handfuls at once.

This particular RS200 Evolution was purchased by the current owner in 2017, who had the engine rebuilt a year later in England before shipping the car to the United States. It’s hardly been driven, with odometer reading just 684 kilometers (425 miles). We’re almost certain whoever buys this car will stash it in a private collection or museum, which is a shame. Cars like these should be driven.

The article from road & track goes more in-depth on the RS200.
