Sporty slant

Wheels (Australia) - - Retro Series 1976 -

The 1973cc, dohc, 16-valve four­cylin­der ‘907’ en­gine had its block cast at a 45-de­gree an­gle for a low bon­net line and later V8 expansion. With twin Dell’orto carbs, its 119kw at 6200rpm and 190Nm at 4900rpm were mod­est (US ver­sions had only 104kw), but were at least aided by a 990kg kerb weight, mid-mounted lo­ca­tion and (Citroen-sourced) five-speed transaxle. 0-100km/h took around 6.8 sec­onds.
