The high-performance motorsport division of the DRVN Automotive Group, Boreham Motorworks, has entered a worldwide brand license agreement with the Ford Motor Company. This partnership will see the production and remastering of some of Ford’s most historically significant road, race, and rally icons.

The first vehicle to be revived under this agreement is the Ford RS200. Celebrating its 40th anniversary, this new version of the RS200 will be a ground-up build, designed as a road-legal, Group B-inspired driver’s car. Originally launched in 1984, the Ford RS200 was engineered for the World Rally Championship, featuring a mid-engine layout, an advanced four-wheel-drive system, and a lightweight composite body. Its return will no doubt be met with celebration as one of the most admired rally cars of the 20th century.

In addition to the RS200, Boreham Motorworks will also produce blueprint-accurate, period-sympathetic continuations of other iconic Ford vehicles, beginning with the Ford MK1 Escort. First introduced in the late 1960s, the MK1 Escort quickly became a motorsport legend due to its lightweight design and advanced suspension setup, which provided exceptional handling and agility on both road and rally stages. This remastered MK1 Escort will be produced in very limited numbers and will carry continuation VIN numbers, preserving its historical authenticity.

Boreham Motorworks will offer these exclusive vehicles alongside membership to The Boreham High-Performance Club. This invitation-only club gives members driving experiences on a global scale.

At least five more iconic Ford vehicles will be celebrated in this series, with the Ford MK1 Escort continuation making its public debut later this year. Interested parties can register their interest directly with Boreham Motorworks right now!

This collaboration comes at an already exciting time for Ford Performance Motorsports, which is expanding its racing programs globally. Upcoming projects include the Mustang GT3 at Le Mans, a new Ford Raptor for the Dakar rally in 2025, and Ford’s return to the pinnacle of motorsport.
