In January 1990 the third generation Sierra RS Cosworth was launched, this time with four wheel drive. As early as 1987, Mike Moreton and Ford Motorsport had been talking about a four wheel drive Sierra RS Cosworth that could make Ford competitive in the World Rally Championship. The Ferguson MT75 gearbox that was considered an essential part of the project wasn’t available until late 1989 however.
Ford Motorsport’s desire for a 3-door "Motorsport Special" equivalent to the original Sierra RS Cosworth was not embraced. The more discreet 4-door version was considered to have a better market potential. It was therefore decided that the new car should be a natural development of the second generation, to be launched in conjunction with the face lift scheduled for the entire Sierra line in 1990.
The 1990 Sierra Saphire Cosworth 4x4 offered here is described by the vendor as all good, showing no sign of welding repair and to be in very original condition all round. The car comes with the original Stereo/cd still in place. There are numerous old MOTs and invoices totaling over £20,000 and the car comes with a new MOT with no advisories. These cars are surely a good investment as fast fords continue to increase in value
