The Legend Returns!
Did you know that the Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth is statistically the most successful race car of all time, with a higher start-to-win ratio then any other car? The RS500 achieved multiple victories and championships throughout its racing career, powered by the versatile Cosworth YB engine. There was a time when virtually every touring car grid was packed with RS500, such was the car’s popularity.
And perhaps the most iconic example of an RS500 is this one … the gorgeous Eggenberger RS500 touring car. We were thrilled when current owner Paul Linfoot kindly lent us this car to display in Cosworth’s reception. This isn’t the only RS500 in Paul’s fleet, but we think it might just be one of our favourites.
Look at what’s arrived in Cosworth’s reception! Only Paul Linfoot’s gorgeous Eggenberger RS500 touring car!!!
This iconic YB-powered car is still being raced, most recently at the Nurburgring by legendary touring car driver Klaus Niedzwiedz. Massive thanks to Paul for letting us borrow the car.
