Description

Corgi: 1/43 Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth (Black) – Diecast Model

The Sierra RS Cosworth was created to give Ford a competitive Group A Touring Car for various different championships throughout the world. To be homologated 5000 examples had to be built in one year and in fact a total 5,542 ‘whale-tails’ were made between the first pre-production prototype in February 1986 and the final car in December. However, Group A rules allowed for the build of 500 ‘Evolution’ cars to a more extreme specification as a basis for the actual racers so between the 13th and 24th November Ford made a batch of 500 Cosworths (4 becoming RS 500 development prototypes) and stored them at Dagenham until the RS500's speci­fication was signed off.

The stored cars were then converted at a frantic pace by Aston Martin Tickford in Bedworth, Coventry, between June 18th and July 28th 1987; homologation was achieved on August 1st. The package included a stronger YBD engine with a larger Garrett AiResearch T04 turbocharger and wastegate which gave 575bhp in full race tune. Extra front and rear spoilers plus a narrow pinstripe and RS500 badges visually differentiated this more competition focused Cosworth. The result was one of the most awe inspiring and dominant racing cars ever produced. The RS500 modelled was used by Ford as their launch press and publicity car and appeared in various magazines such as Autocar and Car, as well as being photographed with celebrities and various Ford sponsored racing drivers.

Specifics:

  • Scale: 1:43
  • LE Size: 948

Corgi's famous model vehicles captured the imagination of millions of baby boomers and, what were once simply toys for boys, are highly sought-after in the expanding collectables market.
