An iconic Ford Racing Puma is up for sale at auction, and you could drive what auto experts call a pint-sized Porsche.
This 1999 Ford Racing Puma has driven 72,206 miles and is one of only 500 produced.
Collecting Cars, which is currently handling the sale, claims this particular model was exported to the Channel Islands in 2008 but has recently returned to the UK.
The Puma is painted Ford Racing Blue, with blue Alcantara and black leather on the Sparco seats and 17-inch multi-spoke Speedline alloy wheels.
And at the time of writing, the top bid was £10,755.
Powered by a 153hp 1.7 liter petrol engine with a five-speed manual gearbox, it was last serviced in April 2023 with a new cam belt, tensioner and water pump.
Collecting Cars stated: “The paint is said to be in good condition with some small stone chips on the front end, an imperfection on the driver’s door and a small blemish on the front splitter.”
“If you look at the interior, the interior looks very sleek and the steering wheel has been reupholstered by Royal Steering Wheels. There are slight wear marks on the door sills and imperfections on the driver’s door panel.”
The Ford comes factory-equipped with power windows and mirrors, air conditioning and a CD player.
According to the seller, the last MOT test was done on March 17, 2023 at 72,123 miles, resulting in a clean result the first time.
The auction ends tomorrow, May 16, on collect cars Website.
This came after a stunning collection of ‘fast Fords’ from the 1980s was set to go under the hammer.
A stunning parade of classic Italian cars will also be auctioned off, with the total expected to reach a hefty £1million.
