One of 24 Ford RS200 Evolution to hit auction block

RM auctions announced this week they will be offering a 1986 Ford RS200 Evo Group B for sale at their annual Amelia Island auction being held in March. Pre sale estimates for the car are between $80,000 and $120,000 which doesn't seem bad for a Group B homologation car which can out accelerate any supercar of the era. The RS200 was recognized by the Guinness Book of Records for 12 years as the world's fastest accelerating car. It's hard to comprehend this much desire for a Ford hatchback.
