Ixo Ford Escort Cosworth 1000 Lakes Rally 1994, driven by T.Makinen/S. Harjanne, in 1:43 scale.
The Ford Escort RS Cosworth was a sports derivative of the Ford Escort. It was
available from 1992-96 in very limited numbers. It was instantly recognisable
due to its large "whale tail" rear spoiler. The main selling point was the
Cosworth YBT engine, a highly tunable turbocharged 2-litre engine which had an
output of 227 PS (167 kW; 224 hp) in standard trim.
The Escort Cosworth was a rare car, with 7,145 vehicles produced from the start
of production on 19 February 1992 until the last car rolled out of the factory
on 12 January 1996. A tiny number were unofficially imported to the United
States, where it was considered one of the greatest performance Fords of all
The car was to be Ford's new rally car, and very successful it became with its
total victories amounting to 8 in Group A guise. Drivers included famous victor
at the 1994 Monte Carlo Rally, the Frenchman François Delecour, future quadruple
World Rally Champion Tommi Makinen (who took his maiden event victory for Ford
in Finland that same year before departing for Mitsubishi for 1995), as well as
the Belgian Bruno Thiry and, from 1996, 1990 and 1992 World Rally Champion
Carlos Sainz of Spain. One-time 1988 and 1989 back-to-back title-winning force
for Lancia, Miki Biasion and 1991 Rally Catalunya winner Armin Schwarz were
among the other fabled pilots to be seen behind the wheel.
