That's awesome especially with the split quarter windows like the XR's have. That interior pic looks like an old concept image of the actual XR's interior to me. A new interior concept would probably include air bags.

Those pics have been around for about a year now. I don't know Spanish so correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it's not a factory rendering, just someone with an interesting imagination.

As for Ford reviving the Merkur brand - not a chance. They don't even own the rights to the name any more.

wasn't aware ford didn't own the rights by chance do you know who they sold the rights to.

Bingo! Typically something has to have value for someone to buy it! :twisted:

I love it! No Tupperware cladding, a huge guppy hole for cold air, Quarter Quarter windows, Bi wing or Whale tail that mama and I think they'd have a weiner...Winner!
