1981 Ford Escort MK2 RS2000 (sedan)

Offered on Ebay Australia in February 2017, this modified RS2000 Sedan is an extreme performer, with a reported 197kw at the rear wheels. The seller noted that the car had a large number of modifications mechanically, but we like that they have kept the car relatively original externally, other than the large rims. Over $50,000 has been spent on this car, which can be backed up by receipts.

It's been fitted with the famous Nissan SR20 4-cylinder engine, explaining the amazing power, and has a 6-speed manual gearbox installed. Other features include a 3 in ch turbo back exhaust, Platinum ECU, Race pack dash, XR8 LSD and traction bar, 4-wheel disc brakes, 17 inch Simmons wheels, adjustable front end/top mounts and bottom arms, Koni shocks, new carpet, re-trimmed interior - and the list goes on and on. 

Perhaps not a car for the lover of originals, but an impressive conversion. Bids were at $34,500 (AUD) when we last saw the car. If you have an RS2000, please add yours to Classic Register. We now have a number of these on the RS2000 register.
