You probably all know various videos in which inconspicuous but extremely powerful vehicles defeat current super sports cars on the quarter mile. These so-called Sleeper carsthat make an almost standard impression from the outside, but have been equipped with a lot of power, are currently very much in trend. Such vehicles are also among the fastest road users on the road, and it is always an excellent feeling for a sleeper driver to leave a high-priced, highly motorized super sports car behind and show him the taillights. The British tuner Jon Gamble has converted such a Ford Sierra Sapphire Cosworth 4 × 4 into a quarter mile monster, which covers the 402m long route in a breathtaking 10,3 seconds. We are now introducing you to this vehicle in more detail.
One who is hardly noticeable!
When is the last time you have one Ford Sierra seen on the street? This model has almost completely disappeared from the street scene, at least in Germany, and is now a cool young or old-timer. Ultra-rare is, of course, a Sierra Cosworth 4 × 4, of which only very few specimens were built, which are mostly in collectors' hands nowadays.
Let's start with the modifications to this extraordinary Sierra, which one for example GAZ Gold coilover kit include, which pushes the already deep Ford a little closer to the road. The paintwork is original from Ford and is called Smokestone Blue, and it was attached to the vehicle front splitter im RS500 style appropriate. In addition, the front bumper modified to generate more cooling air for the engine. For the classic racing look, Jon still has Gamble multi-part BBS rims with Central locking attached, which are kept entirely in gold, and thus act as eye-catchers.
Of course you are allowed to Dragstrip Monster also large brake discs and one Racing brake system Not missing, which is why a system with four-piston fixed calliper was installed on the front axle, the disc diameter of which is 330 mm. Standard brake calipers and brake discs with a diameter of 300 mm do their work on the rear axle and ensure that the Sierra comes to a safe stop even at high speeds.
Racing feeling moved into the interior.
While the seat covers are still original, they stopped Harness belts of Willians in the Sierra Cosworth. In addition, were additional instruments installed, and one Gear change indicator ensures that you always drive in the right gear in order to get the most out of the quarter mile.
764 BHP are astonishing!
It hits under the hood YB 200 Ford engine, which is fabulous thanks to a BorgWarner 91/80 EFR twin-scroll turbocharger and an Autronic SM4 ECU remapping 764 BHP ( from 774 HP), and thus, as already mentioned above, an incredible quarter mile time of only 10,3 seconds, reached. Thus, the Sierra is on a par with one Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye or a Ferrari SF90 Stradale. By the way, it is switched via a sequential transmission with six speeds and the power is transmitted to all four wheels. Unfortunately, we have no information about the top speed or the acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h, but these values should be on the level of a super sports car.
