Our 1988 Ford Escort RS Turbo has had quite the interesting back story.

Originally from the sunny south of France, it was picked up and restored by its second owner Sean Swift who also bought the white escort pictured below but found it was in such a poor condition that restoring it would leave him at a loss.

Sean then brought them back to the UK where he started his beautiful renovation of the grey RS Turbo which made its way to us, with very few miles on the clock.

Unsurprisingly we’ve had multiple offers from the team to run it in…
