We haven't made any additions to our vehicle category lately - we've had some ideas knocking around for designs to accompany our Sierra Cosworth T-shirt, as we're Ford fans here at Spicetag. Well now we've found some time to finish our designs for a couple of Fast Ford legends. See below...
SIERRA RS500 COSWORTH T-SHIRT
The Sierra Cosworth is a true Fast Ford legend. The RS500 seen here was the evolution edition of the Sierra RS Cosworth. Launched in 1987, the RS500 developed 20 hp more than the standard car thanks to a larger Garrett T31 turbo and had minor tell-tale aesthetic adjustments - removed front fog lamps for extra airflow and additional lips to the tailgate spoiler - and out of the 500 made, 392 were in black.
The 3 door Sierra RS Cosworth took part in the World Touring Car Championship in 1987, and didn't get off to a great start. However, the RS500 was homologated half way through the Championship and won 5 out of the final 6 races.
The Eggenberger Texaco Sierra is probably the most recognisable Cosworth in race form. Here is an RS500 in a design inspired by the decals and colours of the Texaco racing car. View the Sierra RS500 Cosworth T-shirt at our ebay shop and at the Spicetag website here.
ESCORT RS COSWORTH T-SHIRT
The 3 door Sierra Cosworth was replaced by the 2WD Sapphire RS Cosworth in 1988 - then came the 4x4 Sapphire Cosworth in 1990 - and the final Ford to bear the Cosworth badge arrived in 1992, the Escort RS Cosworth.
Developed by Ford's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), the vehicle is essentially a Sierra, with a developed Sierra chassis as the MK5 Escort could not accommodate the large Cosworth engine and transmission. The Escort body panels were beefed-up and the trademark whale tail spoiler was fitted.
The Escort RS Cosworth was designed to compete as a Group A car in the World Rally Championship and went on to win 7 national rally titles. Here is the Escort RS Cosworth in a design inspired by the unmistakable Cosworth engine cover and it's stamped lettering.

ESCORT RS TURBO T-SHIRT
Way before the Cosworth engined Fords, the most popular turbo powered car was the Escort RS Turbo, which launched in 1984. This car featured the great Garrett T3 turbo, giving it a tasty 130 hp.
A sought-after car in MK3 form, this is one of the first super-fast Fords. Here in classic white and with original wheels, view the Escort RS Turbo T-shirt at our ebay shop and at the Spicetag website.
