My father had a car like this once. 1 of 9 in traffic in Sweden... It was a wonderful car to drive. :D 0-100 km/h in 6,2 sec, and top-speed at 260 km/h...

Is that damage on the rear bumper in the main pic?

No, they're speed holes, they make the car go faster.

Not very desirable to have holes in your car, makes it look like shoddy workmanship

It's a Simpsons joke, from "Homer the Clown"

Extract from the script courtesy of www.snpp.com :

Fat Tony and his henchmen go cruising for Krusty.

Tony: OK, wherever Krusty's gone, we'll find him. Legs, you check
out the East Side. Louie, Rome and Budapest. Tell the boys
I want a total world search.
Legs+Louie: Right, boss.
Homer: [at a car dealer] I want a free car because I'm Krusty.
Krusty the Klown? Get it? Krus -- [honks horn] -- ty!
[honk]
[Tony's car skids to a halt]
Tony: Cancel the world search.
Homer: I want everything that's coming to Krusty the Klown. Which
is me, Krusty!
Louie: [behind a fence with a rifle] Hey! It's Krusty, all right.
Should I shoot him gangland-style or execution-style?
Tony: Listen to your heart.
Salesman: Well I can't _give_ you the car, Krusty, but I _can_ let you
have this little number for practically nothing: only
$38,000.
[bullets hit the car]
Homer: [suspicious] Hey, what are all these holes?
Salesman: [quickly] These are speed holes. They make the car go
faster.
Homer: Oh, yeah. Speed holes!
[bullets riddle the car and smash the windshield]
Salesman: You want my advice? I think you should buy this car.

I mean the bumper looks kind of dented.

IIRC he skids in one scene and glances off a pylon by the sidewalk, creating that rear damage. All in all, though, this car remains intact compared to other vehicles in the film.

I hate the fake computer-smoke-effects they used in this scene were the 450 SEL does a reversed-180. It spoils pretty much everything.

Wonder why they went back and added that really fake smoke? That reverse 180 maneuver would have looked just as good without it.

The position of the 6.9 boot badge changes - compare 5th of Neon's thumbs with /vehicle_15401-Ford-Fiesta-1984.html . I think the fiesta pic is correct, so more than one car used, with an ordinary 450 as well as a 6.9.
