Ahhhh ... a blast from the past from my childhood NEC / Earl's Court Motor Show days! Those angular, chiselled lines are very late 70's ... so by the time it came out it got quickly out of date, always looked like a 70's Tatra to me. It was a totally uninspiring car to drive. Still, it does have a certain 80's kitsch charm about it now (velour seats...!), especially as there's probably only about 3 left in the UK now. You could get it with the Douvrin V6 as well......
Wikepedia says only 20,000 were built (I'm surprised there were that many) compared to 115,00 Peugeot 505's. Enough said.
Give me a comparative Citroen CX over it anyday..... now THAT'S a cool car & looks great even now. Or another competitor (though more expensive) - the Alfa 6...????
