I found myself some time to analyse some stats for this beauty:
0-100: 6.2 seconds
0-160 / 0-100 mph: 14.1 seconds
0-200: 23.2 seconds
0-250: ca. 52 seconds

If my conclusion is correct, it's only one second slower to 200 than the Mercedes 500E of the time :O

Ah yes, a blast from the past. I remember the name. You could benchmark it against the Vauxhall Carlton GSi 3000. Perhaps power to weight is similar. ;)

It's probably the fact it has a manual transmission, lmao. Those things went by pretty fast if the driver knew what they were doing.

LOL! Well those were the days! The very first automatics were slush boxes!
