  1. Ford Escort RS Cosworth

From 1992 to 1996, the Ford Escort RS Cosworth was one of the best British muscle cars of the ’90s. Ford built it using Sierra RS Cosworth bits, but this Escort was smaller. And better still, it featured the improved 2.0-liter turbocharged engine producing 227 HP. The exterior meant pure business with flared wheel arches, a hood with cooling vents and a massive easily adjustable rear wing.

However, one of the main features was the rally proven all-wheel-drive system. In fact, it was necessary since the car developed over 230 lb-ft of torque. So, the Escort RS Cosworth was fast for the day. And with a 5.8 second 0 to 60 mph acceleration time, it could beat most sports cars of the day.

These are the Union Jack sports cars and the 20 most legendary British performance machines of today. Which was your favorite?
