Okay, it never won Le Mans. It didn't even do all that well in Group B, as the FIA killed what may stand as the manliest class ever to exist in the history of motorsport before FoMoCo engineers really got the machine exactly right. But just look at it! It's a fabulous kitbash with a body built by freaking Reliant of all people. Plus, even though it was heavier than other cars of the era, you can tell by watching the footage that it still weighs like eight pounds. And somehow, while the ferocious Bruceosity of the 959 cannot be fronted upon, the RS200 is still cooler.

Porsche 959 at the 1986 Paris Dakar; 650hp? Ford Sierra Taillights? Why, it's the RS200!; Oh Group B, How We Miss You [Internal]
