1989 Merkur Scorpio Review
Very Unlikely To See Another One On The Road At The Same As You . — It was fully loaded, Burgandy with Black/Ebony interior. Power rear seats the car was a H/B ,rear wheel drive with fully ind. suspension. The engine was a 2.9 ltr V6 with auto trans. the heating system was fully digital and the front seats had hand pumps to bolster up the seats. They have 139HP but easily handle over 130mph . The ODO registered in MPH not KPH. They are good on fuel but cost of parts and sourcing them is not something that most people would look forward to dealing with !. If you own one you are sure to turn heads everywhere you go and people will always come up to you and ask about it because they never seen one before and don't know who made them. Merkur is German for Mercury and they were built in Germany and imported only for1987-1990 to a total of 25,000 units in all for Canada and the USA duriing those years. If I had a the money and space I would buy another one in a heartbeat.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: not made anymore , top of the line while in production.
Cons: repair cost can get out of control of you don't perform you own repairs and know where to go for parts.
