2003 Robin Hood 2B (2-litre Pinto)


  • Beautifully finished and built
  • Just 6,610 miles
  • Modified Pinto engine
  • Ford Sierra-based

The Appeal

If you love the physical interactivity of properly driving a car, then a small sports car or roadster is what you need. Many companies in the UK have offered kits to turn humdrum family cars into fun track machines and weekend B-road burners. But Robin Hood’s USP was the idea that all you needed was a donor vehicle and their kit and you had everything you need. No need to source parts or scavenge in breaker’s yards.

This example – one of their 2B kits – has been built to a very high standard. Based on a 2-litre Pinto engined Ford Sierra, it has been carefully modified and enhanced to create a brilliant little sports car. If you’re looking for a track day car, or just something fun to wheel out of the garage on sunny days, then this has to be on your list.

  • Black rollover hoop
  • Team Dynamics multi-spoke 15-inch alloy wheels, finished in gloss black and shod with a matched set of Yokohama tyres – they are all in very good condition, with no kerb marks

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
