Rally-inspired Ford RS200 sells for more than £230k at prestige auction – but it didn’t reach HUGE guide price | The Sun

A rally-inspired Ford RS200 has been sold for more than £230k at a prestige auction, although it still didn't reach its HUGE guide price.

The 1986 Ford RS200 has only covered 8,442 miles from new, and went under the hammer for the grand sum of £231,750.

However, Silverstone Auctions – who handled the sale – estimated that it could reach up to £280,000.

This amazing car went under the hammer last Saturday, May 20th, and reached almost 5 times its original sticker price.

Silverstone Auctions summed up the racy motor as: “a stunning low-mileage RS200 in Diamond White that is a must for any collection of Performance Fords.”

The white motor, still in fantastic condition, can reach 60mph in just under four seconds.

And the deep red bucket seats, fire extinguisher and an array of dials make it clear that this supercar has true racing heritage.

The Ford RS200 was born during an intense period of competition in rally history and Silverstone Auctions described this particular model as a real "pride and joy" example of these very rare "rally cars for the road".

It was originally owned by the director of the RS200 Owners Club, but it was purchased in 1990 by its seller – with only 152 miles on the clock.

According to the seller, the car was comprehensively restored by Arch Motors in 2014.
