Displacement was raised to 3600cc, producing an impressive (even by today’s standards) 250hp, power steering and ABS brakes were now fitted as standard and the old torsion bar rear suspension was replaced with coil springs and shock absorbers. Careful attention was also paid to aerodynamics with a reduced drag coefficient down to 0.32, and with virtually zero lift stability and road holding at high speeds was greatly improved.
