Great performance and styling.


The brakes are under specified for the performance.  Could do with stiffer suspension to make it better around corners.


An 80s Classic. — The fastest production family saloon when it was introduced. Has great performance, even by today's standard. When it was first produced it obliterated all other family saloon cars. The handling is somewhat wanting by today's standard, and the brakes leave a lot to be desired.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Funny And Affordable By Kaare

A normal family car with a powerful turbo engine and a low weight. The quality is "British 80'es": Not as bad as "British 70'es", but neither as good as "British 2000-" Read More
