I had a 1987 SOHC 2.0 GLSi, mine was around 10 years old and performance matched the figures here.
I don't believe the later DOHC version was any faster despite an extra 10bhp. Emissions would have starter to factor by then, plus trinkets such as airbags and ABS add weight.
It was quite a bit faster than my current 2005 BMW 116i which claims to have 115bhp and more torque. The 116 is definitely heavier, the Sierra was really light in the end because bits kept falling off it.

Oh yes! And don't forget, iron oxide is lighter than pure iron. So these 80s and 90s cars are getting faster day by day. :D

The performance figures for the 2.0i gls here are correct, the year is supposed to be 89 though. The xr4i hit 60 in about 8.0 secs and was noticeably quicker than this. The weight is correct with the 4i being about 80 kilos heavier.

there was no 1986 Sierra with 125hp 2.0l engine...
the 2.0l engine in 1986 delivered 115hp, the 2.0l from 1989 delivered 123hp(125PS)

the perfromance numbers claimed here are from the 1985 150hp Sierra XR4i (2.8l V6) next to the Cosworth versions no 4cyl Sierra was close to the perfromance claimed here..

Yeaah! It's the 80s Sierra! And those figures look almost too good to be true. Was it really just 1125 kilos?
