Rob brought this this car back in September 1997
after some thieving scum stole his other XR4i from the Homebase car
park in Rochester. He had left it parked for no more than five
minutes, then a long police chase later and some fancy driving by
the filth saw his car a write off. Also whilst the car was in the
police impound someone helped themselves to his Exhaust and Stereo.
The police said that the car thief made off with them, which is
quiet believable as I'm sure that the scum bag in question had
enough time during the police chase to stop the car, let the exhaust
cool down, un bolt it and run off down the road without getting
caught. But anyway...
Robs new car apart from the whale tail spoiler,
was completely standard when he brought it. And since then he has
transformed it in to the beast you see below.
Original Serria Cosworth front grill,
and chrome Ford Mondeo alloys are just the start of this car's
Custom made twin exit exhaust system
required the fuel tank to be modified to get the pipes to fit!
The engine is the Cologne 2792cc V6
with ported heads, flat back valves, modified exhaust ports, K&N air
filter with a custom modified air box and a Maxtork Clutch.
The interior has had much work done
too, with the edition of cream leather seats from the American
Merkur XR4Ti, and Rob has re-trimmed the door cards in matching
As I'm sure that you'll agree, this
truly is one impressive car.
