From The Late Brake Show.
Barn Find Ford Sierra XR4i – derelict for 30 years. Jonny is in South Wales for this classic Ford garage discovery, which ends up spawning a second (bonus) barn find before the end of the shoot. Parked since the early 1990s this 1984 Sierra XR4i has some 13,000 miles on the clock, and was locked away when the late owner was medically advised to pause driving.
Thanks for stopping by The Late Brake Show.
Before the Sierra Cosworth the XR4i was Ford’s sporty flagship. Launching a year after the Sierra model emerged (40 years ago this year) the XR4i had its own bespoke bodyshell design and utilised a fuel injected 2.8-litre V6 from the Granada. It was a fairly short-lived model, as the Cosworth replaced it and dominated all racing formats to cement its place in both motorsport history and street hooligan folklore. Today there are thought to be less than 100 XR4is on UK roads.
