This Might Be Your Last Chance To Pick Up That Cossie Bargain

Externally similar to the RWD Sapphire, the new model boasted bonnet vents and dark-tinted back lights. Under the skin was where the main changes took place, with a viscous-coupled four-wheel-drive system and MT75 gearbox adapted from the XR4x4. with 66/34 rear/front split, the Ferguson-designed setup proved man enough for the cosworth without compromising the car's handling ability.

But a 70kg weight penary meant more power was needed. So rather than simply revising the mapping, the VB was thoroughly reworked - now featuring a stiffened cylinder block, improved intercooler, revised cams and torque-orientated turbo setup. Power rose to 220bhp but straight-line performance dropped back.

The 4x4 was available in more colours, including Diamond White, Ebony Black, Flint Grey, Magenta, Nouveau Red, rare Moondust Silver, Moonstone
