1: Merkur XR4Ti

Ford tried something different with the Merkur brand when it brought the cars over from Britain. The problem was that the observations of the cars were polarizing and the prices were high. Consumers didn’t want to plunge down the money on a car model unknown at the time. Which meant sales for Merkur cars suffered tremendously (via Classic).

Although the styling and performance was widely acclaimed, the cars simply didn’t catch on with consumers. At the end of the day, the Merkur XR4Ti is sort of a relic of a time when Ford was trying to innovate. Sadly, the car didn’t last that long, but you’ll still encounter one on the road every now and then.
