Back in the Malaise Era, Europeans could buy a rear-drive Ford Escort equipped with the Pinto 2.0 liter engine, and it was a pretty good performer by the standards of the time, racking up plenty of rally wins. Fast-forward to the early 90s, and Ford figured they'd cash in on the RS2000 name by sticking the 150-horse DOHC four-cylinder engine out of the Sierra into the little front-driver. Cue the Rocky theme!
