Vauxhall Senator (1987 – 1994) Review
Vauxhall Senator (1987 – 1994) At A Glance
And here it was, the ultimate Vauxhall for the ultimate businessman in a hurry. The Senator might have been pure Carlton under the skin, but the imposing new body with chip-cutter grille gave it a presence all of its own.
So, it's no wonder that traffic police took the big Vauxhall to their bosom, happy that they'd finally found a replacement for their ageing Rover SD1 3500 V8s. Digital dashboards were an acquired taste, and the 2.5-litre model was a little sluggish.
Pick of the range is the 200bhp 24V model that, in manual form, will hit 150mph given a long enough run.
