Winged Car Wednesday – 1993 Ford Escort RS Cosworth

When Ford needed a new Group A rally car in 1992, the company created the Escort RS Cosworth. Based on the fifth generation Escort, the RS Cosworth came equipped with all-wheel drive and a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine making a healthy 224 hp.

But what makes it a highlight for Winged Car Wednesday is that giant whale tail rear spoiler that runs nearly parallel with the roof line. Overkill for a road car, the big wing certainly helped the Cossie stay planted to the road during high-speed rally stages.
