The auction took place last weekend at the NEC Classic Motor Show, where a string of amazing classics went under the hammer.

The Sierra RS Cosworth is one of the most in-demand Sierras, only trumped by the even rarer RS500.

The advert says the Sierra comes in ‘Moonstone Blue with a virtually unmarked Recaro grey cloth interior,’ and ‘just two former keepers have had the pleasure of owning this time-warp car from new.

‘It was dry stored in 2003 and only recently emerged from hiding to undergo a thorough recommissioning in April of this year at a cost approaching £7,000.’

Ford partnered with Cosworth for its motorsport programme and the Sierra Cosworth was built as a road-going homologation model to allow it to go racing.

It featured a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine with around 200hp which was sent to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox.

The advert goes on: ‘It’s supplied with the original purchase invoice for £16,630 from Henlys Ford, an original Henlys book pack including the owners handbook, audio guide, an official Press Information pack of the period and the Ford Service Plan booklet.
