1991 Ford Fiesta RS TURBO MK3
The Fiesta RS Turbo was the high-performance model in the Ford Fiesta Mk3 range and was introduced as a three-door version only in April 1990 with production continuing until 1992. As an example of the excesses of the bygone 'hot hatch' age, the Fiesta RS Turbo from the early Nineties is typical. This was an affordable little Ford with an extrovert approach and a Porsche-like punch. Those who could tame the peaky turbo, the torque-steer and the handling under acceleration loved them. And the same is true today. Theoretically, it was only available from specially appointed Ford RS dealers, which was a bit of a marketing ploy. a potent CVH 1.6-litre four cylinder turbocharged engine with a Garrett T2 turbocharger, it was blindingly quick, developing 132bhp with a top speed of 133 mph and a 0-60 time of 7.9 seconds. The transmission was lifted from an Escort RS Turbo and the suspension was beefed up also. Visually, there was a set of 14’’ RS alloy wheels, a body kit, green rather than blue stripe mouldings, colour-coded rear spoiler and door pillars, opening rear quarter windows, green tinted glass and RS bonnet louvres. Anti-lock brakes . Inside the car, the differences included raven coloured Recaro seats trimmed in Benetton/Ascot and a grey leather trimmed gear kno, electric windows and central locking. The Fiesta RS Turbo is a ‘pocket-rocket’ - no doubt about it. Mid-range acceleration is awesome. Thanks to the standard limited slip differential, it grips like a leech too. Today there are very few Fiesta RS Turbos left ( you can only find a couple in the English ebay ).
The car presented here then, has been recently imported from Italy and is something very special. It is a completely standard 1991 Fiesta RS Turbo, having covered only (115,866 KM) 71,995 ORIGINAL miles . The car has been part of a collection and has been kept in superb original condition.
