1995 Vauxhall Calibra SE6 2.0 8v from UK and Ireland
Old school cool
Nothing yet, but being a 8v means a bomb proof engine... Easy D.I.Y maintenance... MOT needed 3 tires!!!
Becoming rare now, with dedicated owners clubs that can save you lots of cash when running a 16 year old car.
Stunning sleek looks.
Low insurance (classic car).
Better comfort long distance than our 12 plate 1.6 Ford Focus.
Huge boot space.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

These were good cars. The problem was though, the faster, more complicated 16v 2.0 or the V6 were not quite as reliable, which is a shame really as those engines gave this car the performance its looks suggested.
This cars main rival, the Ford Probe, had basically the same problem, and did not sell too well.
Hope you're still enjoying your 2.0 8v, performance aside. Still makes a good looking car to cruise about in. Wish they would resurrect some of these 1990s sleek coupes in 2018!
