Live from the Geneva Motor Show: Ford Escort RS Mexico

Ford has traveled to this year’s Geneva Motor Show to introduce the all-new Focus RS, an all-wheel drive hot hatch aimed right at the Volkswagen Golf R.  Additionally, the GT supercar that debuted last January in Detroit is making its European debut here in Switzerland.

To show off its performance credentials, the Blue Oval is displaying a number of historic models including the 1974 Escort RS Mexico pictured below.  the Mexico packs a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 85 horsepower, which is plenty considering the two-door’s low weight.  We don’t know if the car is owned by Ford or if it comes from a private collection but it is in better-than-new condition.

A Sierra RS Cosworth was parked just behind the Escort – stay tuned, we’ll bring you pictures of it tomorrow.
