Odometer Reading: TBC MoT Expiry: 10/12/2020 *No-expense-spared extensive restoration *Engine seriously upgraded *First-class presentation An urban legend if ever there was one, Ford's performance range surpassed itself with the Sierra Sapphire 4x4 but there was always room for even more power, as this example shows. This 1990 example has an urban streetfighter air but it is important to look beyond the external appearance to the close attention to detail, whether in the bodywork's restoration or the mechanical upgrading. Our vendor says the bodyshell has been extensively restored, being stripped back to bare metal before any corroded material was cut out and replaced, And to save the next owner having to repeat the exercise the underside was coated with anti-chip and the latest rust-proofing was sued throughout. The interior features the original grey leather Recaro seats with custom-made red seat belts front and rear, and dashboard inlays feature piano-black gloss and carbon fibre. The engine's upgrading features an extensive list of new components that include a WRC Inconel exhaust manifold with IHI RX6 hybrid turbocharger, air-injection anti-lag system, Group A alloy twin fan radiator and a Thermatic electric water pump the fluids are kept moving through Samco silicone hoses. Power delivery is through a Quaife Group N close-ration gearbox and Helix five-paddle clutch. The power hike is kept in check with adjustable Konis and Eibach lowering springs all round, steering being handled by a Mercedes-Benz electric power steering pump, and a new Group A loom handles the electrical side. With such a considered approach to restoration and improvement, this Sapphire is certain to please anyone looking for a practical, rapid and eye-catching modern classic saloon.
