ETCC-inspired mkI Escort

The retro Ford scene consistently finds new ways to surprise us, doesn't it? While we've seen bubble arches on mkI Escorts countless times, the fusion of period magnesium BBS E30s and a ducktail spoiler creates something totally fresh. It's got something of the ETCC Capri about it, while that sublime two-tone colour scheme gives it real presence.
Through the windows you can see that this is not a case of form over function, with the rollcage and harnesses suggesting competition pedigree, and those promises are backed up by the window-sticker evidence of various motorsport entries. What a magnificent little Escort.
