VAUXHALL ROYALE SALOON/COUPE

4-door 5-seater saloon/2-door 5-seater coupé.

Yet another 'badge-engineered' car, this being the Vauxhall equivalent of the Opel Senator/Monza models, with big and impressive styles and Opel's six-cylinder cam-in-head engines, Assembled in Europe, not the UK, and for first two years sold only with 2.8-litre engine. 3.0-litre injected versions have 180bhp and 125mph top speeds, with four-wheel discs and lavish equipment. Far better cars than their UK sales would indicate - a 'sleeper' for nineties cult ownership?
