1988 XR2. Sublime 100% original & unrestored example. Vast history file from new.

Key Facts


In late 1981 Ford launched the original XR2 which replaced the short lived Supersport model featuring the 1.3 Kent engine. The first generation XR2 featured a 1.6 engine developing 84BHP.

In August 1983 the Fiesta MK1 range was replaced by a more rounded Mk2 version. The same basic body shell was used but given a new smoother front end and re-styled tailgate. Ford chose to hold back the sporty model and launched the XR2 in June 1984 just two months before the B prefix in August.

The MK2 developed more power, utilising the 1.6 CVH engine from the XR3, developing 96BHP.

This delightful later example finished in Diamond white was first delivered and PDI’d by Bougourd Brothers LTD,  St. Peter’s Port Guernsey in 1988 and made its way back to the UK in 1989, being first registered by a Ford dealer 26th June, 1989.

It has clearly been cherished and garaged all its life by a number of Ford enthusiasts and kept completely standard and original, throughout. Even down to the small detail of the correct tailpipe which is something you rarely ever see these days. Void of any welding and sporting its original panels.
