Evans overview at the time available at:
“The Contessa line is a no compromise group of products for serious female cyclists. These bikes are adapted to rider needs with the same high end equipment found on men’s bikes. Whether you’re a recreational rider or a racer, there’s a Contessa bike for you. The Scott Contessa Spark 2012 Women’s Mountain Bike is a full suspension aluminium framed bike equipped with a Shimano SLX drivetrain and Rock Shox fork that delivers the ride quality of the carbon fibre Sparks but at a nicer price.”
Full specification available from ‘Vital MTB’ (this bike has original wheels, saddle, handlebar grips matched to bike, and original forks but, from servicing, some spec slightly altered – for example there is a new, better, tyre on the front):
