SMC Heritage are proud to present this stunning 1991 J Ford Fiesta XR2i. With just 48,945 miles and one lady owner for the past 28 years this really is a special example:
Released in 1989, the Mk3 Fiesta XR2i was an instant hit. It was a vast improvement over the already highly lauded Mk2 thanks to a new taut chassis, fuel injection and a more obvious performance look. The colour coded body-kit was more aggressive than that of its predecessor with built in fog lights and the now iconic blue pin stripe. The updates where not just cosmetic though, the suspension was refined over the standard models and slightly lowered and stiffened to reduce the cars centre of gravity to help combat understeer and body roll. Early Mk3 XR2i Fiestas like this car retained the 1.6 CVH engine, but with added fuel injection – a first in a Fiesta. With 104bhp it was 14hp on the XR2 and more than enough oomph for the period traffic light Grand Prix. Colours available were Diamond White, Radiant Red, Mercury Grey and Black
Evidently having always been garaged the factory Diamond white paintwork is in excellent order throughout with perfect factory shut lines and a deep glossy finish. The factory correct optional extra alloys are unmarked and fitted with brand new premium tyres. This really is a cosseted time warp car
The front sports seats still remain firm and the Zolda cloth is in unmarked condition and incredibly it is still taut with none of the sagging or bagginess that blight most examples. The carpets, head lining and door cards are all lovely and clean and free from any damage and even the original parcel shelf is intact. All dials and switchgear are fully functional and the electric windows and central door locking are in perfect working order.
Totally standard, Fully HPI Clear, one owner lady owner for the past 28 years, every old MOT and with just 48945 miles this vehicle really stands out amongst its often thrashed and previously damaged peers. It has certainly been cosseted having spent most of its life baring a cherished number worth many times the value of the vehicle. Over all its condition is best described as time warp. With fast ford prices ever increasing and the best low mileage XR2’s now trading hands north of 20k a good MK3 XR2i is surely a shrewd investment
If you are looking for the very best, most attractive and original example of this legendary hot hatch you need to see this car.
The vehicle will be MOT’d and fully service by SMC Heritage prior to collection for complete peace of mind.
