1997 Ford Scorpio Ul­tima 24v

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

Rarely seen th­ese days, and still se­ri­ously un­der­es­ti­mated, the 24v Cos­worth en­gined Scorpio of­fered ev­er­thing the late-‘90s high-flyer wanted – other than badge ku­dos. That was their loss – the fi­fi­nal Scorpio in­car­na­tion was a crack­ing piece of ma­chin­ery, with typ­i­cally good en­gine, gear­box and, un­sur­pringly, first-rate han­dling too. Here was what would surely be one of THE very best in the UK – 60,000 miles from new, £10,000 spent on it since 2011, and in su­perb or­der. The paint was al­most flaw­less, the body like­wise, and the in­te­rior seemed al­most as new, while the al­loys were scuff-free. Of­fered with­out re­serve, some jok­ers might have imag­ined it stalling at 1500 quid, but the £4000 paid was right for a car as good as this both in terms of what it was, but its con­di­tion too.
