  • American gearheads often complain that European automakers never send their best vehicles Stateside. There’s a good reason for that: Americans usually don’t buy them. No car drove that point home harder than the 1985-1989 Merkur XR4Ti, the Americanized Sierra XR4i.

    Today, the 1985-1989 Merkur XR4Ti remains an often-forgotten piece of automotive history. The XR4Ti is notable for many reasons: It’s one of the first times Detroit tried to take on , and it’s also one of the first hot European cars Big Three shoppers got to sample. With Ford showrooms once again filling with hot Euro metal such as the Focus ST, the XR4Ti remains a fantastically fun reminder of what once was — or could have been.

This 1989 Merkur XR4Ti looks like an enthusiast-owned example that has a number of performance upgrades but retains a mostly stock appearance . Although lacking the bi-plane rear spoiler of the early modes, the monochromatic exterior treatment has aged well, especially compared to those with gray lower body cladding. The Sierra style nose treatment deletes one Merkur badge and makes the front more aggressive. Find it in Abingdon, Maryland for $3,700.
