These Are The 4 Best Ford RS Models

Ford Escort RS1600 

First of all, the Escort RS1600 is not the first Ford RS produced. Before the Escort RS1600, three different models were offered for sale. But Ford Escort RS1600 is the first vehicle to truly deserve the RS symbol. In addition, the RS1600 model is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine developed by Cosworth. 

This car is far ahead of its time rivals. In particular, the 115-horsepower American car has a dynamic drive. The Ford RS1600 also dominated rally racing in the 1970s. This model managed to attract the attention of thousands of fans during his race. It was also one of the key cars that determined the fate of the race. American automaker Ford produced just 1,000 RS1600s in four years. That’s why the Escort RS1600 is one of the rarest Ford models ever produced.
