A group of classic cars gathered on Hyde Civic Square for the Heritage Open Weekend. The yellow car VBX 3T is a Ford RS2000.

According to the RS Owners club LinkExternal link (click link for more details) the model was built at the AVO factory between 1973 and 1974.

According to Autocar LinkExternal link "The RS200 was a two-seat, mid-engined, four-wheel-drive special, complete with a part-carbonfibre chassis. To satisfy homologation requirements 200 road cars had to be built, each fitted with a 250bhp Cosworth-developed, four-cylinder, turbocharged engine. For rallying this was cranked up to an astonishing 650bhp. Before the RS200 had hit its stride in competition, however, Group B cars were banned from rallying on safety grounds."
