stole from TF:

Not exactly your inexpensive Turbo Ford, but definitely worth a little drool time.

Nice but some wrong info in the text.
Makes no big difference but they were 1998cc.

i dont really care, and do not not anything but what i have read from books and online, but i remember the info for the EVO models to be 2.1L cosworth BDT

For 1987, Ford had planned to introduce an "Evolution" variant of the RS200, featuring a development of the BDT engine (called BDT-E) displacing 2137 cc, developed by Briton Brian Hart. Power figures for the engine vary quite a bit from source to source, but output claims range from as "little" as 550 horsepower (410 kW) to as high as 815 horsepower (608 kW); it has been said that the most powerful Evolution models can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) in just over 2 seconds, depending on gearing.

Wow, did anyone else see how much that 1952 Ferarri 340 Mexico Coupe went for?? $4,290,000! That's just beyond nuts.

That Rs200 went for a good penny as well. That's sweet how the spare tire is concelled like that!
