Stephen Harper – #Petrolheads

In this edition of Petrolheads

We meet the designer of the iconic Ford Escort RS Cosworth, Stephen Harper.

Stephen started his career with Austin Rover where he worked on the Metro and Montego estate. He subsequently moved around a number of other manufacturers, penning such cars as the Volvo 480, MGF, TX1 black cab and, most famously, the legendary Ford Escort RS Cosworth.

In 1993 he set up his own design consultancy, SHADO, which has worked with a wide variety of vehicle manufacturers from Rolls-Royce to DAF trucks and Volvo.
