For something that so obviously should have been BIVA tested but hasn't been.

A few around like that possibly done as it was not a true factory RS 2000 at the start. Not exactly the period upgrades the collectors like.

Fairly nicely done but just doesn’t look quite right, especially rear arches

I'd rather just have kept the Honda S2000!

Struggling to see which bit was nicely done - nothing looks like it fits at all ?  Arches are just wrong, Poor choice of wheels, graphics look droopy and as for the shape of the front wings around the grille . . .

I am a huge fan of the rally style Escorts, but this just looks so wrong to me   bleugh

Agreed  -  It was a bold move that could have been good, but in my mind ended up an epic fail   bleugh

Have you ever driven one of these Dave ?   Quite an experience. I would love one   ;-)up
