The Ford Escort RS Cosworth was a sports derivative and rally homologation special of the fourth generation European Ford Escort. It was designed to qualify as a Group A car for the World Rally Championship, in which it competed between 1993 and 1998. It was available as a road car from 1992-96 in very limited numbers. It was instantly recognisable due to its large "whale tail" rear spoiler. The main selling point was the Cosworth YBT engine, a highly tunable turbocharged 2-litre engine which had an output of 220 PS (162 kW; 217 hp) in standard trim. Tuning companies have achieved power outputs of even over 1.000 hp. It was also widely acknowledged to have excellent handling.
