Introduced in 1984 with similar k jet injection to the late mk1s. Later examples had digifant injection, and frequently had higher option levels.

Available alongside the 8V from 1986 the 16V model increased power to 139bhp. Late big bumper models are particularly desirable.

mk1 series 2

Built in low numbers, and very few good examples survive. Revvy 1600cc engine and early examples came with a 4 speed gearbox.
