Vauxhall Calibra

Vauxhall’s impressive new Calibra went on sale in 1990, the most aerodynamic car in its class thanks to a Cd rating of just 0.26. Based around the floorpan and running gear of the third-generation Cavalier, the Calibra offered a choice of 2.0-litre (8v / 115bhp and 16v / 150bhp) engines.

The 201bhp Calibra Turbo arrived in 1992 (complete with permanent four-wheel drive, a six-speed gearbox and a top speed in excess of 150mph), followed by the 2.5 V6 in ’93. And now? From around £1000 , the Calibra is one of the best-buy Vauxhalls of the ’90s.
