Realising Retail Potential

Calling all Petrol Heads to Fareham Shopping Centre

Visit Fareham Shopping Centre, Hampshire this week and you’ll be in for a treat.

If you are a car fan, you won’t want to miss the car display at Fareham Shopping Centre this week.  Fareham’s, Hendy Ford car dealership is displaying a mint condition Ford Escort RS Cosworth.  Built in 1995 the heritage car is on loan from the Ford Heritage Centre until Sunday the 11th June.

Originally designed to qualify as a Group A car for the World Rally Championship, in which it competed between 1993 and 1998. The Cosworth was available as a road car from 1992–96 in very limited numbers. Instantly recognisable due to its large “whale tail” rear spoiler, the main selling point was the Cosworth YBT engine, a highly tuneable turbocharged 2-litre engine which had an output of 227 hp. Widely acknowledged to have excellent handling and used by the British Police for a time in the 90’s, it’s still as popular today as it was over 20 years ago.

Steve French of Hendy Ford told us, ‘the Cosworth is proving a huge hit with visitors to the centre and we’ve had lots of people taking photos of it and sharing them on social media already.  As a local car dealership, we know how much people appreciate the older cars and rather than just displaying our newer models, we thought we’d bring this one along to evoke some memories, as well as a lot of car envy.  It’s unfortunate that we can’t sell it, as we’ve had lots of enquiries about it.’

Also, on display at Fareham Shopping Centre, you will find some newer Ford models from Hendy Ford, including the Fiesta ST-Line, Fiesta ST and Focus ST and the new Kuga ST-Line X.
