cool - brings back memories of my teenage years
I believe the capuccino was king of the hill in those pre-skinny decaf days.Its performance was dramatic enough to raise questions in the House and have the worthy Guardianistas spluttering into their lattes (or whatever they drank back then) about the ridiculous speeds it could achieve - how cool is that?
Those 24v Senators were cracking cars too.Part of the reason the the requested ban was this:
Vauxhall had just sold a lot of 24V Senators to police forces, Vauxhall had neglected to let the police forces know that they were just about to import a car that could literally blow the doors off a Senny 154Mph V's 176Mph of the LC.....
This caused outrage, made worse by the fact that all of the RHD issue LC's had been sold and deposits taken from them, so the old bill couldn't have one :lol:
Finally Vauxhall agreed to install restrictors to them, they were then wound back to 155Mph, but it was dead easy to bypass and ome of the early cars had no limiter at all
I have seen a Vauxhall Omega with full Lotus carlton running gear, the car was badged as a 2.0 GLS, aside from the DTM style wiper and slightly wider wheels and tyres this car looked standard, it was evil and very little got past it in the traffic light grand prix
Errrrrrrm. You sure?cool but not a patch on the sierra rs cosworth
Its a carlton on roids. And its been given the full lotus treatment.It's engineered by Lotus ffs, how can it be uncool, even if it does look like a Vauxhall Carlton?
^^ What Jim said... Absolutely sub zero!!!!!Sub Zero
The first supersaloon and still the benchmark all are judged by. When it was launched only an F40 would out accelerate it - can you imagine Vauxhall launching a Vectra that would beat everything except a Veyron? Thats what the Carlton did.
It caused uproar at launch - there were calls to ban this "176 mph family car"
Awesome car. I want one.
