Twin Turbo V8 Ford Escort RS Cosworth
Matt Smith’s twin turbo V8 Ford Escort RS Cosworth
Things that are fun often annoy people. Driving like a loon, doing a really loud fart, or, in Matt Smith’s case, taking a mint Escort Cossie, chopping it up, and removing pretty much every part the RS fanatics love and cherish.
Taking an angle grinder to a stunning Cosworth most of us would love to own wasn’t actually the fun part; in fact that sounds damned scary to us. What’s fun is the finished result, the absolute beast you see right here.
It’s pretty much a given that any car with a pair of massive turbos poking out of the bonnet is going to be a serious weapon. So without even reading this feature, we’re sure you can guess this gleaming red Escort Cosworth has something special under the bonnet. But it’s far more than that. In fact, it’s probably the least standard Cossie we’ve ever seen.
