EXTERIOR
Finished in stunning optional Ford Performance Blue, (Code H2), the leading colour choice of many Ford ST and RS variants and the must have choice for the ST220.  Commensurate with the incredibly low miles covered under avid enthusiast ownership, the paintwork boasts a brilliant deep gloss shine and superb uniform finish.  Only the closest scrutiny will reveal faint markings and some stone chips to the front, none to detract from the cars impressive appeal.  The original Ford glass has been chassis etched and there is slight delamination and stone chips to the front screen.  Ford main dealer number plates are fitted and all badges and trim sections are well preserved with no discolouration.  Muscular styling and twin tail pipes hint towards the sporting prowess of this performance tourer.

INTERIOR
The interior of this remarkable example is in spotless condition and exactly as Ford intended.  The Ebony Leather upholstery, (Code EV), is beautifully clean and free from undue wear or damage.  Minor markings to the driver’s seat bolster and scuffs to the driver’s ST tread plate are barely worthy of mention.  The body hugging Recaro front seats are immensely comfortable while holding the occupants firmly in place, even upon the most spirited drive!  Tailored Ford rubber floor mats have protected the carpets from new and the headlining is flawless.  All controls and functions are exactly as Ford intended even down to the factory fitted Sony 6CD stereo system.  The leather trimmed steering wheel, gearknob and soft finish fascia are pristine.  Truly exceptional and unquestionably an enthusiasts car.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Developed extensively by Ford’s Special Vehicle Engineering (SVE), the 3.0i DOHC V6 24V Duratec powerplant pleased Ford’s engineers by surpassing the ST220’s namesake with an actual power output of 223bhp.  Coupled with impressive maximum torque figures of 285Nm at 4900rpm, a top speed of 151mph and 0-60 in 6.8 seconds was achieved.  Jeremy Clarkson whilst originally testing the ST220 remarked, “Every time I drive one of these cars, I ask myself why do we buy anything else?”  The engine bay is spotlessly clean with all factory labels and stickers intact, and the only modification specified by the previous mature owner is an expensive, quality and very discreet Milltek exhaust system that is visually very close to standard whilst emitting a delicious burble.  The six-speed gearbox is light and precise with a sporting feel.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The standard ST220 18in 16 spoke alloy wheels are virtually perfect and the beautiful centre caps are as new.  Quality matching Michelin 225/40 R18 tyres all round have excellent tread remaining.  The braking system featuring a host of electronic assistance programs offers superb stopping power.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new on 1st March 2004 by Ford Main Dealer, Thornbury Motors Limited of Bristol, this example has been truly cherished by just three mature keepers and covered a mere 37,212 miles from new.  Despite the minimal mileage covered, servicing has been carried out regularly with 10 Ford main dealer and specialist stamps displayed in the service record, the most recent entry being a major service carried out in April 2019 at 36,897 miles with a supporting invoice in the history file for £929.43 for the servicing and maintenance work.
