Ford RS200 Evo

Does anyone know anything about these?

I know they're really ****ing fast, and look hella cool, but that's about it. Ford used them for rallies, but were they ever sold at dealers?

Here's a few pics if you've never seen them before:





What the hell is that extra knob?

Information on it.

Apparently, 24 of the normal RS200's were converted to the 650 bhp EVO version for rallying. GODLIKE.

All from a turbocharged inline 4.


It was part of the Rally group B, which were later banned by FIA because too many spectators were killed in the races.

Far right:

The Evo rally edition is considered to be one of the fastest 0-60 mph cars ever made.

650 bhp + AWD and a very light frame = fast car

in order for it to be in the GBoWR it has to be applied, then tested by their crew. maybe ford never cared to apply for it.
