Description

**SOLD** 1997 Vauxhall Vectra Supertourer 24V

The vendor has kindly supplied the following:

  • A version 1 V6 - Limited Edition number 292 (of 1000) of which only 500 were made in White and under 30 remain registered. Two engines were offered - the 2.0 16v with 136bhp or the 170bhp 2.5 V6, with an Irmscher sports exhaust system and white 16-inch alloys, along with distinctive GSi front bumpers. The Supertourer looked the part, and although the dynamic set-up was barely different

  • The true hero of the Supertourer Vectra generation was the cheekily-named ST200, a car that aimed for the jugular of the Ford Mondeo of the same name, and was so called due to its limited production run and 200bhp power output

  • The ST200 was a V6 only, with the 24v engine, 17-inch Speedline alloys that aped the look of the BTCC cars, AP racing callipers, bucket seats and Koni dampers, with the chassis developed by Motor Sport Developments (MSD), the driving force behind Vauxhall’s Touring Car outfit. 

  • With these tweaks, not to mention the rather purposeful looks, the Vectra B was transformed from an also-ran to a true front runner, a proper performance saloon that, for those who were open-minded, delivered great performance and superb handling. Who’d have ever thought that a white Vectra four-door would ever become a desirable object? Yet today, genuine STs are - you’re looking at £5k upwards for a good one, and there aren’t that many left to choose from

  • New exhaust and new coil springs fitted, otherwise mainly original with Recaro interior. 

  • Dry stored, this comes with a massive service file, a very rare car - it’s the thinking man’s performance saloon!

On-site now for viewing.
