From the 1986 Swedish Rally comes Kalle Grundel with co driver Benny Melander taking the 1670km including 558km of special stages in 3rd place overall in the group B category.

The Ford RS200 started out with a 1.8liter BDT engine at 250bhp. But then upgrades made the RS200 a 300 to 350bhp racer. Future upgrades included a 2.1liter engine which already made changes in its engine block.

The RS200 1986 Swedish Rally was made by IXO. I love the extra details on the engine bay on this one, enjoy!

Love these details IXO made at the engine compartment. Great I dont have to do anything! Hehe!

This was a really quality post. In theory I'd like to write like this too - taking time and real effort to make a good article... but what can I say... I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.
