Default Ford Sierra RS Cosworth

I personally like Ford Sierra RS Cosworth very much, smashing machine! Nicely modified & upgraded from a "family sedan", another great example is the Mercedes 190E 2.5-16! I think Ghia really did a great job on the appearance of Sierra RS Cosworth. Unfortunately, Sierra RS Cosworth was not popular in Hong Kong, the Mercedes 190E 2.5-16 did a slightly better job in terms of sales...

RS Cosworth in someone's garage, what a car!

Mercedes 190E 2.5-16 EVO, beautiful & powerful!

Was the cosworth the sister car to that Merkur car that was sold in low volume in the USA probably 20 years ago?

I'll take the motor out of the Cosworth, I'll leave the body at the door.

I like the Ford! Loos great!
But I don't like the styling of Merc. The spoiler is way to big! Sound is great

Yes, I think so, they look the same to me. We called it Sierra in Hong Kong, it is the predecessor of Ford Mondial...

Yeah, the spoiler is too big, the photo I posted is an EVO, the 2.3-16 or 2.5-16 have much smaller spoiler, look less aggressive but more "balanced".


Mercedes 190E 2.3-16

Still I don't like it. I don't like any old (and the new ones) Mercedes.
