One is a very popular supercar of the 1980s, whereas the other is basically a rally car for the road, which made a name for itself in Group A racing alongside Lancia, Subaru and Mitsubishi.
The two of them are actually as different as they come, so what are they doing sitting together, you might ask. That would be a very similar estimated selling price at the SilverstoneAuctions event that takes place on July 21 and 22.
Made in 1986 and shipped new in France, the Ferrari 328 was in the possession of a wealthy Belgian banker for many years. During that period, it was properly serviced and inspected, and despite being left-hand drive, it was sold to the UK in 2014, where it will attend the aforementioned auction. It estimated selling price is between £60,000 and £70,000, which equals to $79,775-$93,071 at the current exchange rates, and bidders should know that it has only 20,000km (12,427mi) on the clock.
The Ford Escort RS Cosworth Motorsport Edition, on the other hand, is a bit more affordable, as the auction house estimates to sell it for £54,000-£60,000 ($71,798-$79,775). It left the factory in 1994 with Italy as its initial destination, and it still retains the OZ wheels, shod with the original Pirelli P Zero tires, while it has only seen 9,600km (5,965mi) of action over the last 24 years.
So, there you have it: two completely different rides priced very close to each other. Which one would you take home? Or would you rather wait until this 1978 Porsche 911 arrives on stage before you’d do any bidding?
