Review of "Ford Escort RS Turbo"
I used to own a Radiant red escort Rs Turbo Series 2, 1989 model, this is one of the most fun cars I have ever driven. It has a lot of goodies as standard ie:- recaro seats, rear spoiler and body skirt kit, 15" alloys, an adjustable windscreen wiper speed (brilliant when driving at speed in the rain), sports steering wheel etc. Handles like a dream, as i put Koni suspension on this gave a firm ride but still in the comfort zone, would benefit from power steering But less fun!. A good alarm immobiliser is a must this car is a stunner and can be attractive to the "odd tea leaf"! The RS is a real head turner (boy racers dream car) I spent lots of money adding bits like anodised blue dump valve, stainless steel shiny bits under the bonnet and blue leads etc, a stainless steel magnex exhaust made it sound really sweet along with a bailey motorsport dump valve for the essential whoosh. It is possible to source parts from main dealers/ performance tuners and scrap yards for series 2's a bit harder for series 1 RS's. As an ex RS owners club member I have fond memories of taking my RS to silverstone and Donnington for shows and track days. This car hasexcellent performance, I attended an event at santa pod and average 0-60 runs were6 secs, added to this under normal driving you can get 40mpg at 50-60mph. If you want a car that drives and performs, can be economical, and is fun to drive and to own this is one of the best cars to have. I would reccomend having an RS to any one.
