Four Four is now fitted with Ford's 1800 Zetec engine and five speed gearbox. Power output was 114 bhp at 5,750 rpm. This gave it a top speed of around 111 mph and a 0 to 60 mph time of about 7.8 seconds. A road test at the time said, 'And boy does the chassis communicate, yapping away like Ruby Wax, telling you things you'd rather not know about the road surface. And somewhere in all that cacophony there are messages that will get you around that next corner in one piece.' Price was £16,256.00.
Plus 8 now available with the factory option of wire wheels. Front discs get 4 pot callipers and a direct acting in-line servo.
