650hp? Ford Sierra Taillights? Why, it's the RS200!

Back in the late '80s, one of our favorite Matchbox cars was a Ford RS200 that we picked up on a trip to Ireland. Mostly unknown on these shores except to hardcore rallying fans, the RS200 was Ford's entry in the great Group B rallying sweepstakes that also gave us the Porsche 959. The RS200's Evo variant featured a turbo 2.1L Cosworth mill that pumped out 650hp and hurtled the thing to 60mph in 2.1 seconds. That's a special kind of yikes right there...
