10. Ford Sierra Cosworth
Ford UK is a popular economy car manufacturer. But occasionally, the company produced machines with truly amazing performance and power at affordable prices. Some say those fast Fords were the perfect example of “blue collar” sports and muscle cars. This is because mid-class buyers bought them expensive sports car drivers feared them.
One of the most legendary British muscle cars is the fantastic Sierra Cosworth, which they introduced in 1985. The Ford Sierra was an ordinary family sedan they produced in numerous versions. The car featured rear-wheel drive and independent rear suspensions. But, it was when Ford contracted the Cosworth tuning house for a performance model that the legend was born.
Cosworth took a three-door body and added a special body kit with spoilers, as well as unique wheels and colors. Under the hood was a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that produced 225 HP, propelling the car to 60 mph in just 6.5 seconds. For 1985, those were fantastic numbers, so the Sierra Cosworth immediately became one of the hottest British cars on the road. Also, it was successful on the tracks, winning many races.
