Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 Racer
The VIN plate shows that it was original black and no sunroof.
Chassisnumber WFOEXXGBBEGR853xx is produced in October 1986.
WFO = World Manufacturer identification -West Germany-.
We bought the car in 2002.
In the car was a 4x4 Cosworth engine. With the small turbo. The measured horsepower was 300 Hp.
The gearbox was a BW T5 std 2wd Sierra Cosworth gearbox.
The suspension was the rally GrA version of the Sierra Cosworth RS. But therewere big GrA brakes on the car.
We did some races with the car as is. And the biggest problem were the wheel bearings.Even small vibration on the massive GrA
brakes ruined the bearings.
In 2008 we started doing some more races with the car. The engine had got a big T4 turbo and the 8 injector inlet manifold.
In that time is was less
expensive to buy used RS500 parts.
