Apparently, according to there has been a surge in demand for the decade’s coolest aspirational cars. So here are five of the most desirable. Personally give me one of these any day.

A high performance version of the classic Sierra Cosworth, produced in order to help Ford keep up with their motorsport competitors. The car was designed to be “unbeatable on the racetrack” and featured a powerful competition engine. As a result, the RS500 was one of the most successful rally cars of its time winning many national series. Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford owned one and several professional drivers made their name in a Sierra including legendary driver Jimmy McRae.
