You really can’t have too many spoilers. The Sierra RS500 Cosworth has two, and they’re hard to miss. That’s ok though, because this Cossie has enough get-up to need them. A limited production, beefed-up homologation variant of the already formidable Sierra RS Cosworth, its 2-liter engine inhales nearly 11 PSI of boost to produce 224 horsepower — stock. Because the RS500 was always intended to be raced in the World Touring Car Championship, the engine had a couple of nifty tricks that meant someone with the tuning knowhow could easily unlock the 500-plus horsepower capability of the engine. A second set of fuel injectors were unused on the road version, but activating them and turning up the boost would deliver nearly the same power as the race-prepped variant, which was virtually unstoppable in WTCC racing. In fact, the RS500 is the reason that a lower horsepower limit was imposed on WTCC cars to level the playing field. Interestingly, Ford farmed out construction to Tickford-based Aston Martin. Externally, the only clues that this is the rare RS500 version are a few discreet badges and a second lower spoiler beneath the whale-tale. Exceedingly rare (the “500” in the name is the number produced) and very fast even in normal spec, this is a truly special Ford.
