Ford Escort (Mk2) General Information

This Escort Mk2 being homologated in group1 means it was an even cheaper alternative to the so famous group4 Escort as group1 basically is comparable to today's groupN. And being a relatively affordable, simple and easy to handle car, that already in standard trim had 110BHP, this car was as well a hit with many privateers.

The Escort RS2000 may as well give another good hint why the group4 Mk2 Escort was called the RS1800 although it never had an 1800cc engine. The Escort RS2000 was meant to be the top of the range Escort Mk2 and therefore it had already in road version a distinctively different front end look with the front grill covered by an aerodynamically formed piece of plastic, housing twin headlights. This front re-design looked nice but for a 265BHP group4 Escort it had a huge disadvantage as it did cover the proper radiator grill. So group4 Escorts did have a 1600cc Escort front end design, which in turn means the usually group1 entered RS2000 was an easy to identify car, although there have been some cases of teams removing the plastic RS2000 front.
