1984-89 FIESTA XR2 MkII

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Seven Brilliant Fast Fords To Buy Now -

The first-se­ries XR2 packed only 84bhp when it ar­rived back in 1981. The MkII, by con­trast, was equipped with a new 1.6-litre CVH four-banger, which re­sulted in a use­ful hike in power to 96bhp. It may not have been as quick as a Volk­swa­gen Golf GTI MkII, but it wasn’t far short. It was also much cheaper. The MkII also looked the part thanks to its chunky whee­larch ex­ten­sions, aux­il­iary front fog lights and red bumper stripes.
