  Lot 99
 

1991 Ford Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth 4x4

Registration - H659 KBM

Chassis No. - WFOFXXGBBFLJ21237

M.O.T. - January 2022

Odometer - 25,423

Back in 2015 this well-presented 1991 Cosworth was treated to a respray in its original livery of Moonstone Blue, at which point the roof lining and window and sunroof rubbers were renewed. Recent mechanical replacements have included the dampers, propshaft donut, offside front hub and a rear ABS sensor. Following three years or so in Spain, this fast Ford is now being offered for sale, and the vendor presently considers its Cosworth engine, five-speed manual gearbox, bodywork, paintwork and black leather interior trim to all be in ‘excellent’ condition. The car certainly belies its total mileage of 125,423 and comes complete with a full service history up to the 100,000 mark, a boot full of spares, comprehensive selection of paperwork, second key and almost all its old MOTs, plus a current one that’s valid until January 10 next year.

Released in the September of 1982, the Ford Sierra was a replacement for the ubiquitous Cortina and its German sibling, the Taunus. The aerodynamic styling was arguably ahead of its time and caused initial controversy – one eminent UK journalist nicknaming it the ‘jelly mould’. Ford had the last laugh, however, with sales eventually reaching 1,299,993 units over the 11 years of production; making it Britain’s 10th most popular car up to that time. Always quick to support the performance and motorsport markets, Ford introduced the be-winged XR4i in 1983. This was followed by the XR 4x4 in 1985, the Sierra RS Cosworth in 1986, the Sierra RS500 Cosworth in 1987, the Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth in 1988 and the Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth 4x4 in 1990; some 12,250 of which were manufactured before Ford’s power mantle was assumed by the Escort RS Cosworth in 1992.

In summary:

  • Treated to a respray in 2015
  • Comes complete with lots of spares, MOTs and service history
  • Belies its mileage of 125,423
