It's the original RS200. Was built for Group B WRC back in the 80's. Amazing cars.
How can you hate Ford? Sure they made some average cars but they also made some amazing ones too. Their current line up is quality. Just look at how many WRC events/championships they've one & they also produced one of the most successful engine in the history of F1. Hell, Henry Ford invented mass production. No one can top that haha.

Sorry totally of topic

Imo I wouldn't say the Ford rs200 was that greatest of rally cars. lancia made some monsters as well as the mighty Audi quattro and I'm sure the rs200 caused the end of the group b cars when 1 crashed into a load of spectators and killing some.
I thought the new focus used a 5 cylinder Volvo engine but not 100% sure.

Ford did make some wicked cars mk1/2 escorts, Sierra and the cosworths. It's mad when I think back knowing of rs turbos running over 200hp which seemed like monster power at the time :lol:

Going by the "R" on other Japanese cars i'd say the it's Racing Sedan 200cl (200 cl = 2000 cc) :)

RS = Rallye Sport.

Ford have been using this term since the 1970 RS1600 Escort. Chevy had the Camaro Z28 RS back int the late 60's. I can't find anything earlier than this using the RS name .
