An interesting fact: mighty XJ220 had an engine taken from this car.

15.4s@100mph? Sounds like a joke! The 1994 Chevy Impala SS hit 0-60 2 seconds slower and did a 15.0@92 in the 1/4 mile. How is this possible with a 0-60 time of 4.5? lol someone must be drunk

I think back in 1985 someone in Testarossa was very disappointed, when this lunchbox on wheels destroyed him in acceleration!

Looks like a self-made bodykit made of plastic!
Really a JOKE!
Who would buy this thing?

This car looks like a joke! But technically that's perfect, especially in 1985! That's an amazing Ultimate hatch of the XX century, and only few modern manufacture hatches would outperform it, I guess. At the track it could be Really fast with 250 hp, 1 tonne weight, AWD and all that aero stuff. This hatchback could be a serious problem to the supercars the same period!
Unbelievable! And that's made by Morris Garages!

The front bumper looks like a snow plow or a cow catcher on the front of a train. :) snickering.

You'll sure have alot of downforce on this! I bet it's very hard to get this thing of the ground in a jump or something like that!
CarElitist 11y ago
I believe that is a rally car for the street much like an Evo or STi. You need downforce.

What the heck is up with the body kit???
