Sierra RS Cosworth – E602 CTU

Feb 24,2006 Julian

Some of my fondest RS memories were during my ownership of this car. The late registered E plate car was a minter throughout, and completely standard in every way. I remember searching in vein to find a decent one at the time, no easy task!



Eventually I discovered this one and after a thorough inspection from my brother, laid down the money there and then. I distinctly remember travelling from North Staffs to the Wirral to pick the car up on a bleak Wednesday night, and recall my brother who was accompanying me for the drive back, suggesting we take a more pleasurable route home rather than nipping back down the motorway; the result was a four hour blast around the open roads of North Wales!



It’s hard to describe the grin-factor of the rear wheel drive turbocharged Cosworth, but no matter where you were going or what you were doing, you always had a smile on your face. As for turning heads, there was simply nothing to better it, and indeed many friends still talk about that car, even though I’ve owned many faster and more expensive cars since!

My fondest memories of the Cosworth are of following the RAC rally around Wales; when it used to be a proper rally, that is! I reluctantly sold the car when I moved to a new house and had no garage, and no money! I believe it’s still in the hands of an RS Owner’s Club member to this day.
