If there is an automotive icon of the early 1980s, it has to be the Ford Sierra XR4i with its biplane spoiler. When the Sierra saloon concept was first shown to the public in 1980, it had that spoiler, yet only the XR model used it in production and its production life was short: just 25,662 were sold in two years, 1983-85. Unsurprisingly it never suffered from the crosswind instability for which early Sierras were famed. Best known for its tail-happy handling, it was the last of the great rear-wheel drive V6 grunt Fords, the XR4i was loved by road testers for its mile-eating ability in comfort. Precious few of these icons survive in anything approaching original condition, rust and 'boy racers' having decimated survival levels.
This XR4i was originally registered on 28th February 1984 and is finished in white with grey velour trim; the interior is excellent with no rips or tears. This Ford has just had a good quality respray including colour coding of the bumpers and benefits from RS alloy wheels and new tyres. Having just been serviced which included the fitting of new shock absorbers and brakes, this iconic Ford XR4i is supplied with a V5C registration document and a full year’s MoT test certificate. These three door Sierra’s are rare and becoming increasingly more desirable.
The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to Government guidelines throughout viewing and auction day.
