Information About the Ford Escort RS2000

If you’re a fan of 80s Hot Hatches, and want to know where the genesis of them began, then the Ford Escort RS2000 is your best place to start. Developed as an alternative to Ford’s more volatile RS1600 model, it was made at their former production line in Aveley in Essex from 1972 onwards, and it was pitched as an affordable and attractive performance car for the commercial market.

The Escort RS2000 shares with the RS1600 a fortified bodyshell, making it an ideal car for use in several fields of motorsporting including Rally driving and motor racing. We have this model available to book for our range of rally experience packages at both London Rally School and Silverstone Rally School.

Power on this classic hot rod comes from a 2.0 litre Pinto engine, bumping out 160 bhp. And with achievable top speeds of 114 mph, it’s surprisingly fast in acceleration for a car of this age and stature, zipping from 0 - 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, and 0 - 100 mph in 10.7 seconds.

Cool Facts About the Ford Escort RS2000

The Ford Escort RS2000’s subsequent popularity in the fast growing world of rally driving in motorsport, and the fact that only around 5,300 were ever produced means that, as with most Ford hatches, it’s incredibly rare - and steep in price - to find one on the second hand market in good working order.

It’s also Ford’s most highly praised model of this kind. On its original road test, Autocar magazine commented that it delivered when driven to its limits, saying that it was ‘more consistent and refined than its forerunners by far.’
