Escort_mk1_Mexico_002-Optimized

This 1595cc engined car had just 86hp and 93 lb-ft torque, which gave performance figures of  0 to 60 mph (96.6 kph) in 11.5 seconds and covered a 1/4 mile in around 18.00 seconds with a top speed of 103mph. None of this is earth shattering, but the race results are difficult to argue with which was mainly due to how well made and balanced this car was, which enabled it to get it’s power down all the time!
