The RS200 was conceived as a rally homologation special for the ill fated Group B class of the mid 80's. 200 Rallye Sports were built, their Ghia designed glass fibre bodywork finished in White (all the better for sponsors liveries!).
The mid mounted Cosworth Turbo engine provided decent performance with plenty of tuning potential (a modified road legal RS200 holds the official world record for the 0-60mph sprint in just 3.1sec). A second gearstick activates the 4wd system allowing for driver adjustable torque split.
The rally cars may have been short lived but road versions of the RS200 sold for up to £50,000 during the 80's boom period.
