JF Classic Cars present an original Ford Sierra Rs 'Whaletale' Cosworth with just 8839 miles from new.


The Sierra platform was chosen as the basis for a Group A contender on account of its slippery shape and perfect size.

A high profile racing programme along with an exciting new flagship would add a little sparkle to the range, The Ford Sierra Rs Cosworth was born

Ford asked Cosworth to develop a turbocharged version of the Sierra’s two-litre inline engine.Built in Ford’s Genk factory in Belgium production started in July 1986 and ended in January 1987.
