Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - LIVING WITH CLASSICS -

Steve Davies owns two Cal­i­bras; a stan­dard 4WD Turbo LE (one of only 51 made) and a very non-stan­dard V6. ‘It has 3.2-litre V6 in place of the orig­i­nal 2.5-litre en­gine. It’s been remapped and mated to a six-speed man­ual gear­box with a lim­ited-slip dif­fer­en­tial built spe­cially by Quaife. With tubu­lar man­i­folds and Vec­tra in­let plenums there’s about 250bhp avail­able and to help rein it in I’ve got Brembo four-pot calipers and 355mm discs from the As­ton Martin parts bin. The low­ered and stiff­ened sus­pen­sion con­sists of Bil­stein dampers with H&R springs. The in­te­rior is be­spoke too and fea­tures mul­ti­ple amps, speak­ers and TV screens, plus a PlayS­ta­tion.’
