Quick Vid: Ford Escort RS Cosworth

Ford Escort RS Cosworth...I've thought more and more about these AWD gems from the early 90s lately, so I figured I'd dig up some history and share with those needing enlightenment. This automobile was the result of homologation for the Group A Rallye car Ford and Cosworth built a few decades back. In this clip Jeremy Clarkson does a spot on the demise of this and many other great sports cars of 'the day'. Even though this was broadcast when I was in middle school it almost feels like groundhogs day; as emissions and safety restrictions grow tighter worldwide, bidding adieu to future classics happens about every 7-10 years.
