After Group B was abandoned and Ford’s bespoke RS200 rally machine was no longer eligible Ford rallied the 4WD Sierra Sapphire Cosworth, but it was too large to win regularly. Boss, Stuart Turner, who was not an engineer, suggested what they really needed was a Sapphire Cosworth 4x4 chassis under the new, smaller, 2-door Mk5 Escort body. The engineers laughed openly at this naïve idea, then went away and did it anyway, grafting an Escort body on to a shortened Sierra Cosworth floorpan. The resultant 1992 Escort Cosworth won ten WRC events and was one of the fastest road cars of its era.
