1983 Ford Fi­esta XR2

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

The first of the sport­ing Fi­es­tas and, in many ways, the purest. De­void of power steer­ing, trac­tion con­trol and anti-lock brakes, it of­fers press-on, in­volv­ing per­for­mance – more Mini Cooper than hot hatch­back, in fact. This con­cour­swin­ning, orig­i­nal XR2 has cov­ered 32,000 miles from new and has been well cared for. Sold to an en­thu­si­ast who gave it oc­ca­sional use and showed it at clas­sic events, it’s a very rare find, which is enough to make that es­ti­mate not ap­pear as strong as some might sug­gest.
