The original spotless interior is remarkable, as you would expect from such a low mileage example. The Rainbow trim in grey colour scheme can only be described as new, its incredible with no signs of wear, bagging or damage anywhere and is beautifully clean and bright. The original colour-keyed velour carpet is spotless and free from wear having been protected from new by genuine rubber Ford over mats. The small-diameter steering wheel with a ‘soft feel’ rim is as new, all switchgear, interior lighting, three-speed heater, perforated grey headlining, front and rear seatbelts, and unmarked dashboard again are all as new as they left the factory back in March 1988. The centre header mounted digital clock works perfectly with a crystal clear LCD display and the original Ford factory fit stereo radio/cassette with ‘joystick’ speaker balance control operates perfectly. The speedo and tachometer operate perfectly. Fabric trim door cards are unmarked and still remain as per factory fit, as is the perfectly straight rear parcel shelf again still looking as new. The boot area is complete with courtesy light and unmarked removable boot floor. Amazing…
This 80’s hot hatch is finished in factory optional Ford Diamond White, (code B4), and has a brilliant uniformed deep shine throughout. All original panels are perfectly straight and gaps as per it left the factory, never welded and never restored. The underside is immaculate the whole car from new has been professionally Ziebart treated. All original trim sections, bumpers and single red body-side coachline are correct and in excellent order with no fading or distortion, as are the original halogen headlamps and front driving lamps. All original factory glass is in excellent order and has the number plate etched into each window this was a clever security feature of the 80’s. The optional Sunroof with tilting/removable glass operates perfectly and is watertight. A true Fast Ford Icon of the 80’s…
The original genuine five pepperpot 13” X 6” alloy wheels have been refurbished to the highest standard, shod with 5 original unmarked and no cracks Pirelli P6 185/60 HR x 13 Tyres all with fantastic tread depth it just doesn’t get any better than this. The servo assisted brakes with ventilated 9.4” front discs and 7.0” rear drums work perfectly with a very positive peddle feel.
The super reliable free-revving 1597cc (2V) OHC (CVH) engine punches out a lively 96BHP at 6000rpm. Such fun to drive, precise steering and responsive handling along with the unique XR2 sound through the brand new original Ford exhaust is just addictive. The engine is super quiet, starts instantly hot or cold, no smoke rattles or leaks, pulls strong flawlessly through every gear. The clutch and 5-speed gearbox operate perfectly as you would expect. With 0-60 in just 8.7 seconds and a top speed of 112mph you cannot fail to be impressed.
