C20LET Kadett D

I do love a sleeper. From the outside, this appears to be a well looked-after and largely standard Opel Kadett D; it's a 1.6SR, so is the warm variant that sat below the GTE in the model range. Aside from the oversized steel wheels, it's pretty much as Opel intended.
...except that it isn't, at all. There's a C20LET under the bonnet - that's the turbocharged 2.0-litre twin-cam that you'd find in the likes of the Calibra Turbo. There's also an F18 gearbox with a Quaife diff, an organic clutch, and huge brakes. A high performance and thoroughly modern car under the skin, with factory-fresh retro looks. Perfect.
