Here is a fantastic video of the Mk1 Rs2000 driving around the Eifel close to the Nuerburgring.
When the Escort was launched, Ford prepared a rallying version, which was later marketed as the Escort Mexico, commemorating the car’s victory in the London to Mexico Rally of 1970.
Ford felt there was a market for a car with more power and refinement than the Mexico, but without the higher production and ownership costs associated with the more complex RS1600.
Ford believed that such a model would appeal to a wider customer audience than the existing ‘sporting’ Escorts, and would offer RS motoring at an affordable price.
