FORD Escort Twin Cam

Classic Car

The word ‘Lotus’ was silently attached to the Escort Twin Cam, for this model was basically the Lotus Cortina engine and running gear clothed in the lighter two-door Escort bodyshell; something which made it even more of a wolf in sheepish clothing. Available from the start of MkI production in 1968, this 1558cc-engined machine had a very usable 106bhp – more than double that of the standard Escort 1100 – and a top speed of around 113mph. Constructed in limited numbers for homologation purposes. Production ended in 1971.
