HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD IT?

I found it ad­ver­tised on­line in 2009 and bought it for £11,500 from a clas­sic car deal­er­ship called Oak­fields in Hamp­shire, which spe­cialised in Sierra Cos­worths. The first owner was King Hussein of Jor­dan – I have a copy of the log­book with his name in it. As a 1990 car it’s one of the ear­li­est of the four-wheel drive Sap­phire Cos­worth mod­els as that’s when they re­placed the twowheel-drive cars and also got the nicer bon­net with a pair of air vents to aid cool­ing.

HOW MUCH HIS­TORY?

It has pretty much ev­ery­thing – not that there is much to see be­cause it has done so lit­tle over the years. There are still just a gen­uine 28,000 miles on the clock. Af­ter King Hussein had it, the car passed to a com­pany called Rac­ing Green. They sold it to some­one in Dorset and he was the only other owner be­fore Oak­fields sold it to me. All of this is on file along with all the pre­vi­ous ser­vic­ing bills and old MoTs.

WHAT’S LEFT TO DO ON IT?

The car needs noth­ing do­ing to it and re­mains in im­mac­u­late con­di­tion. Since I bought it, I’ve had the cam­belt and ABS mod­ule re­placed, but other than that, it has needed noth­ing other than reg­u­lar rou­tine ser­vic­ing. As you can prob­a­bly tell by the low mileage, it only gets used very spar­ingly.

HAS IT BEEN MOD­I­FIED?

No, this is a com­pletely stan­dard car that has had no mod­i­fi­ca­tions made to it.
