VAUXHALL CHEVETTE HSR

3-door 4-seater hatchback.

HSR was the 'evolution' of the HS, purely for rallying use - most of the 50 built actually being converted unsold HSs in any case. Basically as HS, but with more ectrovert styling which included flared wheel arches and side skirts, plus twin-plate clutch, revised back axle location, wider-rim wheels and 150bhp - all for £7146. Rougher, rortier, less civilised even than the HS, but Vauxhall didn't care - they had an even better rally car from 1980 to 1983, better than Escort RSs or Sunbeam-Lotuses in most conditions.
