"Saving Ford's hot hatch from becoming a fridge"
A resource site for owners of the Mk1 & 2 Fiesta

Project Bobcat Ford Fiesta resource site

In July of 1980 Ford Europe created the Supersport as a limited edition model using the 1300 Sport as a base coupled with extras from the Series-X accessories catalogue. The car was solely for the UK market and production ran until 3000 cars had been completed. Ford's marketing slogan for the Supersport was the somewhat long winded 'The car that looks as good as it feels as good as it drives'.

The interior trim came in either a red (Savannah) or black (Carla) chequered pattern and was unique to the model.
Externally the Supersport was available in only four colours, Black, Diamond White, Strato Silver and Sunburst Red. It was equipped with the Series X bodykit which comprised of wheelarch extensions, a lower boot spoiler and a front splitter (as later featured on the XR2 model) as well as the popular 13" RS 4-spoke alloy wheels. The square headlights were retained from the other none XR models but supplimented with a pair of round driving lamps. The car was also fitted with special bodyside stripe tape which came in either red or grey and a black window surround (this was even fitted to the black models where it wasnt even noticeable unless you looked closely).
