"The Ford Mondeo manufactured by Ford since 1993 was the first Ford declared a 'world car', the Mondeo was intended to consolidate several Ford model lines worldwide, the European Ford Sierra, the Ford Telstar in Asia and Australia, and the Ford Tempo/Mercury Topaz of North America. The Mondeo nameplate is derived from Latin mundus, meaning 'world'. The main sports version, the ST220, replaced the ST200 from the last model series was available in Liftback, Estate and Saloon form. The ST220 produced 226bhp from the newly developed 3.0 litre, V6 engine, which made it capable of 0 to 62mph in 6.6 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 155mph. Early cars were equipped with a five-speed, but the 2003 on cars have a fantastic Getrag six-speeder. The extra gear not only makes motorway journeys more relaxing but the slightly lower ratios on the first five gears mean you can always keep the rev-happy V6 buzzing when the mood suits.
This well specified ST TDCI offered in metallic black paint with red trim is a good example of the well thought-of and capable fast ford. The cars are fabulous value for money and a firm favourite of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May with the estate version is noted as the only car they have ever all agreed upon. First registered in June 2006, this example is offered with V5 registration document and MoT test certificate valid until June 2020.
