Ford spent millions developing the RS200 to battle the Audi
Quattro in Group B rally races. In order to comply with homologation
regulations 200 road going Ford RS200's were built by Reliant
of Tamworth, UK.
The tamed road versions were far less powerful than their racing
counterparts but nevertheless still potent back road machines,
in the right hands.
After Group B rallying was banned due to safety regulations,
Ford sold the remaining production run of RS200's as Ghia spec
road cars to private collectors and enthusiasts.
Fit and finnish are poor, they are meant for racing not posing.
And driven at normal speeds the RS200 is a handful, the car
is best used as it was originally designed.
