Spotted a very interesting 16 plate Fiesta test car parked in Brighton at the weekend. The car does not show on ETIS (reg or VIN) and was registered in Essex (Ford Dunton?)
It is jammed packed full of electronics, computers and sensors, even an anemometer on the roof. Also has quick fuel drain facility etc. I suspect it is a test rig for some of the electronics that will go into production on the Mk 8. Note also the instrument cluster, front bumper/grill etc. Even had a large red emergency stop button on the dash. Quite surprised to see it parked in full view near the sea front.
