In 1985, at the Geneva Motor Show, the four-wheel drive Sierra XR4x4 was shown as a derivative of the XR4i. The XR4x4 had a single rear spoiler instead of the distinctive biplane unit used on the XR4 but did receive unique alloy wheels. A five-door version was added soon thereafter. The four-wheel drive allowed for an extra margin of security on slick or snowy roads, while retaining the car's rear-wheel drive comportment. The original, rear-wheel drive XR4 was quickly taken out of production after the XR4x4 arrived. The XR4x4 originally came equipped with the 2.8 litre Cologne V6 engine using the same Bosch K-Jetronic mechanical injection system used since 1977 in the Granada.
This rare Ford Sierra shows low mileage as a result of being stored in a barn for a number of years. Presenting well in white paintwork with a grey cloth interior, this Sierra model caused quite a stir when it was launched. The aerodynamically styled Sierra was a big departure from the traditionally shaped Cortina it replaced. This example benefits from front electric windows, a factory fitted opening glass sunroof and factory fitted air conditioning. Offered without reserve and presented to auction with a V5C registration document and a fresh MoT test certificate.
