The South African Sierra - the XR8

Ford didn't make a V8 Sierra - apart from in South Africa.


Information on the car in the UK is even scarcer than that for the Merkur XR4Ti - though as with the US derivative, several cars are known to have been imported back into the UK as they appear on eBay or on specialist displays at national events such as Ford Fair or Classic Ford.

Jon Luck, Editor of the Ford Sierra Owners Club magazine "Jellymould" published an article written by club member Richard Childs on this rare V8 beast.
