    so what if theres a ford scorpio, they are made by the same company you know, trust me this is a merkur, my neighbour owns one i have riddin in it, i see it everyday it says merkur.
     
  2. Re: This car has the wrong name !!

    To put an end to all of this banter let me just say that the Merkur Xr4ti is a German Ford. Same engine as the SVO(not SHO)Mustang. But why argue? I think that we can all agree that this car is a straight up unknown street racer, no matter if you are in T-dot or in the Van City. <!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Re: This car has the wrong name !!

    ok, this is how it is, i owned one of these, the one in the picture is a merkur xr4ti. the one i had, was also but came with a little different set up, i.e. mustang SVO wing ( most came with the SVO but some came with a smaller one ) and factory MOMO wheels, if you go to europe then it is called the ford sierra, kinda like if you buy an Infiniti IS 300 its called a toyota altezza over seas. for those of you that think that merkur was actually a company, no, it was like someone said a exotic name that they thought would sell cars, the xr4ti had things only german cars had back then i.e. heated seats, imdependent rear suspension, though the name change didnt work. sierras did get a different engine option though, ?L V-6 and 2.0L I-4, and i have seen a few that were all wheel drive ( god that would be awesome ), but they are the same car. whats funny is if you would go over to your friends that has one of these and pop the hood it says ford all over it, so do the factory speakers and most of the interior parts, the merkur badge even says " Ford werke Koln, Germany "it is a ford no doubt about it and is the same car as the seirra. and i agree if you meant buy this car has the wrong name that they should have found a sierra pic and posted it as such, they were much more of a supercar than the U.S. version, most made 300hp in cosworth 2.0L I-4 trim
     
  4. Re: This car has the right name !!

    this is a merkur xr4ti, we in the uk had the xr4i as well, 2.8 litre v6 150hp, but the sierra had 1.3 litre ohc, 1.6 ohc, 1.8 ohc, 2 litre ohc and 2.3 v6, then they made the xr4x4 2.9 v6 4 wheel drive 150hp, all models underwent changes through the years but the most modified of the bunch are the xr4i and xr4x4 versions with bored out 3.6 litre and 3.7 litre aftermarket engine swaps, turbo technics did make a 325 hp twin turbo 2.9 litre version as opposed to na fueling straight out of the ford showrooms. one of my freinds got hold of a janspeed twin turbo converted 450hp 3.5 v6 xr4x4 and it used to shoot 6 foot flames out of the side exit exhaust and romp on to 185mph, the car cost 5000 uk pounds a few years back when it was already 10 years old.

    Weather this car is a Merkur or a Ford, it still looks like a Sierra and probably performs like one too.
     
  6. Re: This car has the wrong name !!

    Hey I own a XR4ti and it’s like this: It is a ford of Germany car that is just like the Ford Sierra but has a few differences. One of the more obvious, aside from the emblems which do say Merkur (and they changed the Merkur emblem in 88 to just the word Merkur instead of a little diamond shape kinda thing with Merkur written in it and the wing was also brought down to a single wing instead of a double wing), is the extra post in the rear side windows of the car. If you look in a Merkur, even on the door wells you will say it says ford, but its still in a way, a Merkur. Even on the key, you will see the ford logo. But on the out side of the car it’s a Merkur (German for Mercury) Xr4ti. Sorry if I just repeated someone else.

    team. Tony Southgate qui a dessiné toutes les Jaguar Groupe C depuis 1985 est sur le départ et c'est Ross Brawn, transfuge de l'écurie de F1 Arrows, qui prend sa place au sein de l'équipe TWR, en tant que chef-designer en charge du dessin et du développement de la partie châssis. Quant à Alan Scott qui officiait jusqu'à présent en tant que responsable du département moteur, il est remplacé par Gerhard Schumann ( ex-BMW ).

    C'est à ce dernier que l'on doit le regain de fiabilité des Jaguar dans cette saison 90. Entre autres modifications apportées par Schumann sur le V6 turbo, on peut noter la substitution du système

    The car is funny though.
     
  13. Re: heheheheheheheheheheheheheheheheheheheheheh!!

    Yeah, I'm sure it's hilarious when you're watching it's tailights. Most owners of these modify them. Mine would walk all over anything that you have. Not even a Camaro SS can beat my XR

  15. Re: gonna get me one of these :D

    Actually the 86's are very nice the ones with the duel downforce fins, these cars are designed to race against BMW's and Porsches, they are great touring cars and with nothing added can beat a 5.0 if you can drive, O by the way to older 86 rims look nicer to<!-- Signature -->

  24. Re: gonna get me one of these :D

    Ok, just a few things here.

    1. PorscheBoy09, you should go see a doctor about that.

    2. ivanf22, I hate it when Canadians act all stupid and proud in forums and chatrooms. Sit down, shut up, and pay your incredibly high taxes. And don't yell at me, because I live in Toronto, so I know what I'm talking about.
