This RS Special Collector's Edition 3-book set is the sister-volume to the highly acclaimed, award-winning 2-book. Secret Fords Volume One RS Icons Limited Edition. This second special set of Volume Two books moves the story on to the late-'80s and through to the early-'2000s, with one final twist. The special RS Book - exclusive to this limited-run set - swerves off the conventional narrative where Ford's current design team reimagine the iconic RS200 for the decade ahead. It's a stunning culmination to the Secret Fords project after Ford opened its secret design archive of images for the first, and likely the last, time.The RS Special Collector's Edition contains three books in a special boxed slipcase featuring the original design sketches for the Escort Cosworth on one side and the Focus RS on the other. In total, these three books feature nearly 400 pages of never seen cars and untold stories such as who designed the Escort Cosworth.
The main book, " Secret Fords Volume Two", is personally signed and numbered by the author - it contains fourteen chapters that charts the story of Ford design from the cancelled GN34 supercar through to the 2002 Focus RS. The second companion book in the 3-book set takes readers behind the scenes in a way that has never been done before. It's a first-hand trip back in time with the author to see even more never-published behind-the-scenes photos that are gripping for any lover of car design. The third - RS - book exclusive to this special edition is breathtaking. It is accompanied by three posters and tells the tale of each of the hitherto unnamed RS designers and readers get to hear firsthand from the designers of the Escort Cosworth and Focus RS.
The Volume One, 2-book RS Limited Edition and this set, the 3-book RS Special Collector's Edition covering the later'80s,'90s and early'2000s era are astounding publications that will increase in value over time.
