TALBOT SUNBEAM 1600TI

3-door 4-seater hatchback.

Appealing through limited-productive derivative of Sunbeam 1600, complete with twin-Weber 100bhp Avenger Tiger type of engine, an with tailgate spoiler for effect (if not for function). Fancy wheels and badging redeemed by 105mph top speed, and good handling due to short wheelbase. Useful as a Group 1 rally car for the 1.6-litre class, but too hard and noisy an engine (the big Webers didn't help) for habitual road use.
