One really good street racer!


The water pump leaked, and the thermostat didn't close at all and the car couldn't warm up.

General Comments:

The car is with leather seats witch are very comfortable. Engine works great, and the fuel consumption is just 7 l/100km, and in the city it's just a little under 10 l/100km. The car handles much better than my previous one.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am also from bulgaria and totally agree with the man. The Calibra is the cheapest coupe on the market with such performance. I'm driving a Vectra GT, but soon will replace with a Calibra. Really impressive car...

This car is fantastic, comfortable, cheap to run as I have converted to run on LPG (well worth it!!) at around 40ppl it's around 1/3rd of standard fuel prices.
