On the series one the Gold Cloverleaf was the luxury version. It had the lower body in a contrasting grey paint and there was a darkish red/brown strip that ran around the body recess in the middle of the car to delineate between the upper body colour and the grey area at the bottom. It had different interior fabric trim from the 1.3 and 1.5 models, headlight wash with wipers, an electronic check control system in the centre console stack, a metallic grey painted front grille and wood rim steering wheel and gear knob.
The series 1 Green Cloverleaf was the sporting version with the twin carb 105 bhp engine. It had different interior trim again that was a two tone effect where the seat centre panels were made from a different fabric to the outer sections, a different head rest design with mesh centres, a silver grey finish to the trim on the centre console fascia, a different door storage pocket design to the other series 1 cars, body coloured bumpers, alloy wheels (same design as the Sud Green Cloverleaf), headlamp washer jets, different front grille design and a lip on the bottom of the front and rear bumpers, black plastic side skirts and the door window surrounds were finished in satin black. The initial cars in the UK at least also had front fog lights fitted.
With the introduction of the series 2 cars the range was altered and the Gold Cloverleaf model was dropped and replaced by the Ti whilst the top model simply became known as the Cloverleaf. The Veloce models were just standard Ti and Cloverleaf models fitted with a bodykit by the importer. There were two versions of the body kit over the life of the series 2 car. One of them was made by Zender and I forget who made the other.
