Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth (1987) - 1:43 Scale Diecast Model Car
During the mid-1980s, Ford's Sierra RS Cosworth had worked wonders to re-establish the venerable carmaker as a major force in European motorsport, but as competition from BMW and others heated up as the decade progressed, more firepower was required. In 1987, that increased firepower took the form of the Sierra RS500, a limited-edition evolution of the RS Cosworth. Powered by a 225-horsepower, turbocharged 16-valve four that was upgraded in every regard from its RS-spec foundation, the RS500 would become one of the most legendary performance Fords of all time, spawning a race version that would claim multiple touring car championships. AUTOart's 1:43-scale diecast version of the Ford Sierra RS500 is a highly detailed tribute to this performance legend, featuring intricate touches including beautifully rendered road wheels and (unusual for this scale) a viewable engine compartment.
