Classic Sports Car



Stylish and highly practical, the ‘big saloon’ 2000 range was ahead of its time in many ways and still has a lot to offer for a very reasonable outlay, especially if you don’t have your heart set on the Holy Grail Mk1 2.5 PI. If you prefer automatics then the Borg-warner 35 is a good one, while the manual with overdrive cruises with modern traffic. Just don’t buy a rusty one, because it’ll cost more to restore than it will be worth unless you do it all yourself.


A very usable classic saloon with great parts supply and competitio­n potential, with no significan­t mechanical weaknesses


Rust is the big challenge, along with chopping and changing of parts while the cars were cheap. Trying to put a rusty or modified car back to original is expensive and time-consuming
