I was really into Fords at the time and used to pore over brochures (I was 11). I also have similarly retentive acquaintances with whom I discuss alloy wheel styles.

NB they also changed the boot spoiler on the hatchback model.

Cosworth lattice were standard on this edition, there were 2 colours available, the pink and a greeny blue. It had the old Bosch fuel injection and the early style bumpers. The interior was half leather but had the later zolda interior trim. It was kind of a mixture of the 90 spec cars which had interior changes, different radios and moved across to EFI and the Ford EEC4 system. Bumpers, spoiler etc were also changed. The fuel gauge and temperature gauge were also reversed

A friends grandma had one of these in that same colour when I was in junior school. I always have thought it had been resprayed, clearly not. That is one true original and mint example

Although my username would suggest a love of Vauxhalls, I do appreciate the older classic Fords, and that is certainly one of them....and that colour was the rarest could you could get those in IIRC.
