  • First owner from new to 2010 was literally located in the next town from us! (** *** ******)
  • Second AND third owner from 2004 to 2014 as they were registered at the same address and it went from the husband to the wife (** ****** *****)
  • Forth owner from 2014 to 2016 (** ***** ****)
  • Fifth owner from 2016 to 2021 (** ***** ******)

*So, five owners (four previous but effectively three due to a married couple having ownership)

To a possible new owner,

Mouth-watering example with tasteful modifications that starts and drives with no issues. Two remote central locking fobs/keys alongside a thick black folder backing all of the above. Also present – locking wheel nut, Ford RS fancy black leather wallet containing service booklet, service guide, owner’s guide, supplement to the owner’s guide focusing on the RS, safety advice, and audio guide.

A recent acquisition of mine that came about just as the summer ended so I have not had the use I would of wanted to but that may still come…

In the meantime – in a garage, under cover, on charge and available should anyone want to take ownership of this awesome car.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
