This Sapphire RS Cosworth was built 31st December 1989 and 1st registered 26th February 1990, this 4 previous owner, 30000 mile from new Ford Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth in stunning Diamond White is truly a time warp vehicle. As you sit on the ‘as new’ Recaro drivers seat, start the 2.0 turbo charged engine you could be back in the 90’s outside a bank awaiting the ‘robbers’ to jump in and your role as the getaway driver is ‘on’!!
Original owner was Ford Motor Co Ltd Essex, it then transferred to its 1st private owner December 1990. This owner had the car in his possession until October 2011, some 21 years of ownership. The next custodian had the vehicle for 4 years before it passed on to a gentleman that kept it for just 6 months. The current owner has had this vehicle since May 2016 where it has resided in a carpeted garage and only ever used on dry days and in his ownership has only covered around 800 miles!!
The original service book along with the special used vehicle extra cover record is present. The stamps sow the first service was carried out on the 29th March 1990 by W. Harold Perry Ltd, interim service on the 17th December 1990 by Ringways Garage when the mileage was 9868. 3rd service was carried our on 27th November 1991 by TC Harrison (Sheffield) when the mileasge was 17420. 4th service on the 16th January 1993 by TC Harrison (Sheffield) when the mileage was 22197. Its final stamp in the book as we can see was again by TC Harrison (Sheffield) on 30th July 1993 when the mileage recorded was 26443.
Sadly, the history from ’93 to mid ‘10’s is not present. We can only assume it had been laid up resting…
The vehicle is as you would expect, stunning! The interior is as new, untouched and original. The bodywork is superb, looks to be the original panels and paintwork, it is that good! Under the engine bay you are greeted with an unmolested engine & driveline, no aftermarket ‘modifications’ have been carried out. The original wheels were refurbished around 5 years ago.
In the history file is an invoice for over £3000 for works, looking at the list one could assume it was for a light recommission. In May 2016 it was prepared for sale and was the front cover star of the auction house where it was sold to the gentleman we have had the car off.
With the vehicle having carried out minimal mileage over the last few years, this ‘Cossie’ will have a full service & MOT prior to a completed sale.
In summary, this Sapphire RS is deserving of an owner that will cherish is and drive it. The low mileage and ownership will surely mean that the value can only go up!
