Legendary Ford Sierra RS Cosworth with super low mileage set to fetch eye-watering price at auction | The Sun
A LEGENDARY Ford Sierra RS Cosworth with super low mileage is set to fetch an eye-watering price at auction.
The 1986 classic RS has been well cared for during its lifetime, and has covered just 19,000 miles in 37 years.
Silverstone Auctions, which is handling the sale, claims that this five-owner example remains in immaculate condition.
The 'Cossie' is finished in Diamond White – and the dealer certificate shows that it was originally registered to the Ford Motor Co. of Brentwood by RS Dealer Gates Ford of Essex.
The seller bought the RS back in 2016, and it has been cosseted and cared for in his private collection ever since.
This car includes a history file which contains the owner's timeline showing that it was sold to its first owner – who kept it until March 1994.

Silverstone Auctions explained: "At its introduction in 1982, Sierra's revolutionary new shape proved a touch more divisive than Ford had anticipated, and some serious marketing became a priority.
"So it was the obvious choice to become the platform for Ford's new competition aspirations in conjunction with Cosworth.
" It fitted the brief well as it was rear-wheel drive, had good aerodynamics, albeit being prone to lift at high speeds and was available as a three-door."
This five-owner RS Cosworth comes with all the correct documentation, an impressive history file and the kudos of its Ford Motor Company heritage.
