1987 Vauxhall Cavalier Calibre 2.0i petrol from UK and Ireland
Quick, stylish Cavalier, sadly let down by severe bodywork corrosion
RUST! RUST! RUST!
A great looking car with its Irmscher body kit. This car also had cool alloy wheels with lowered suspension to make it look even better, with a fast 2 litre, 8 valve injection engine, but sadly let down by poor rusty bodywork.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I own a Calibra and they are absolutely fantastic cars to have. I blew the 2 litre 8 valve standard engine and now I have put in a 2 litre 16 valve SFi engine out of a 93 K GSi. It has uprated brakes, K&N 57i induction kit and a full Devil exhaust system, twin 4 inch tail pipes. Top cars!

I have an SRi 1.8 and I have never been in such a fast car. It's been lowered and had the full touring car work done to it with a cobra bucket seat. Superchipped and very fast.

My friend owns a Cavalier Calibre, E reg, and its immaculate. So much so that it wins FIRST PRIZE at the Vauxhall Performance Shows at the Billing Aquadrome. Oh and its still its original paint RED not purple!

I have owned two mk2 cavaliers in the past, and both these cars have proved to be very reliable and pretty quick. even after my second one (an e-reg 130) threw a cam belt at 5500 rpm a quick change and re-timeing and it was off again... WONDERFULL motors I love them.
