FORD RS200 - FORD OF BRITAIN 100: IMAGE OF THE WEEK – 52/52


imageTo celebrate the centenary of Ford of Britain in 2011 the company has explored its photo archive to reveal rarely seen images.

RS 200


imageThe Ford RS200 was a ‘one-off’ in almost every way. The development, design, planning and production of the RS200 had been different to every competition Ford thus far, in that the car was designed solely for rallysport use, rather than taking a road-going production model and developing it for motorsport as had been the case previously.
