The droop-snoot Escort RS2000 Mark II has become something of a legend in Ford circles, and with World Rally success was the Seventy's equivalent of Subaru's WRX and Mitsubishi's Evo.

This 1980 RS2000 is presented in stunning Sno White with Black trim and factory sunroof. Powered by the matching numbers 70kw 2.0L 4 cylinder engine and 4 speed manual gearbox this RS2000 is certainly a potent little period muscle car.

Combined with the Sports Handling pack the Escort's famously sharp steering and excellent handling characteristics and with a kerb weight of just on 1,000 kilograms, the RS2000 is capable of reaching a top speed of nearly 170 km/h, with acceleration to match. The sloping quad quartz halogen headlamps, black-outs and rear spoiler combined to give the RS2000 a purposeful look, along with cloth trimmed sports seats, sports steering wheel and full instrumentation.

The RS2000 was well received by the press, with Modern Motor commenting 'The Escort RS2000 is a way of putting fun back into driving. It's the kind of car we should all be driving - responsive, accurate, economical, and fast'.

Although Australian production figures for the RS2000 aren't well documented, approximately 2,400 were built. Very few survive to this day. And with strong world wide interest in RS Escorts these Aussie RS2000s have become highly collectable.

Come and take a look at this little pocket rocket in our Kingsgrove, Sydney showroom. (Ref. 5136)
