1993 Vauxhall Calibra Review

1993 Calibra 16v — In 2002 I bought my Calibra, it was the exact car my dad had from new between 1993-1996. It was a white 16v red top with black leather interior. 7 years and 7 owners later it had 120,000 miles on the clock, tatty interior, some faulty electrics and chavvy alloys. I spent a year trying to restore it to it's former glory, but with a cracked cylinder head, and knackered everything, it was too much money and time. Shame as I was obessed with it as a teenager. Ratings as new: Performance - Quick acceleration 60 in just over 7, brakes and grip good, but no sports car Build quality: Good for it's time, solid and no cheap plastics. Apperance: One of the best looking cars ever made, roofline-tail is sublime. Cost of ownership: Company car, but 35MPG was frequent, so pretty good Fun factor: Not thrilling to drive, but as teenager passenger, it was the mutts nuts to be in.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Beautiful sleek looks, great engine, lots of equipment and practical

Cons: Unreliable with age, neglected by 7 previous owners, bit old skool now

1993 Vauxhall Calibra Review

Calibra 2.0 16v — i love how the car handles with it being lowered by 60mm it feels like its on rails. its a good sturdy car with no rattles. The styling outside cant be faulted as shes beautiful plus the interior is nice all black leather. She costs alot to run but all the maintenance is done by my boyfriend so this works out to be quite cheap. I can honestly say i have never had as much fun as ive had since owning this car. SHES AWESOME.

Pros: nice looking and pretty darn quick.

Cons: sups alot of juice.

Decent Car, But Better Engine Models Available. By Jason

2.0 16v ECO TEC. I'm not a fan of this engine at all. If given the choice I would much rather have the 2.5 V6, but for £500 this was a bargain. Apparently it will do 0-60 in about 8 seconds. I doubt... Read More
