Re: 155. .18. 16v.
Is matey thinking about the "Sliverstone"? That was the BTCC homologation model. It had the rear wing and front spoiler that the BTCC regs said had to be fitted to a production version of the car, in order to be used on the track.
The Silverstone was a 8v 1.8, even though the BTCC racers were 2.0 litre.
The 16v came in a SportPack version, as well as the regular "Sport" and "Super" models. Basically "Super" was old-boy spec (wood accents in the cabin and longer suspension springs), whereas the Sport had lower springs and was more sporty inside.
The Sportpack version was a Sport with a body kit (skirts and spoliers) and black/graphite Speedline wheels... otherwise the same.
