28. Ford Escort RS Cosworth
Ford wanted to rule the hot hatch class and win rallies, so it produced Escort RS Cosworth model. Built using Sierra RS Cosworth bits, this Escort was smaller but featured the improved 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 227 hp. The exterior was pure business with flared wheel arches, hood with cooling vents and a massive and easily adjustable rear wing. The Escort RS Cosworth was pretty fast for the day and with 5.8 seconds 0 to 60 mph time, it could beat most sports cars of the day.
