Cuts through the air like a bullet Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesSleek car, heated seats, electric windows/mirrors/roof, engine types.

DisadvantagesInsurance, finding parts.

"...it more than any other Vauxhall out there, I like cars that are unique, how many Astra's have you counted whilst you've been out today, at least 20 I'd say, Calibra's maybe even only one? Vectra's and Astra's are so popular that they just aren't special anymore, even though Calibra's were stopped being made in 1997 they still look modern and have a great performance. ---WORLDWIDE--- The Vauxhall Calibra also is known as the Opel Calibra in places ..."

The mutts nuts

AdvantagesGreat performance and drive

DisadvantagesInsurance very high

"...and comfortable ride. With the Vauxhall 2.5 litre 24 valve engine power is on tap at all times and you can easilly cruise at 110-120 mph with no objections from the car. The car itself has full leather interior which can be warm (espescially as mine is all black) but extremely comfortable. I only have one gripe about the car and that is the gearing between 2nd and 3rd which to my mind (and others I have spoken to) is slightly wrong. Wyhen you accelerate ..." Read review

calibra2.5v6

Advantagesgood looking, cheap parts, reliable(so far)

Disadvantagesgroup 17 insurance

"i've owned the v6 for just over a yr and a half, have yet to have any mechanical or electrical problems with. I don't really get to use it as much as i would like as it is used as a second car, but when i do get to use it i always have a smile on my face. Turning the key the v6 starts with a nice low rumbling noise, acceleration is very smooth car justs keeps on accelerating which at first makes it seem that it doesn't have as much power as stated ..."

I bet you can't find better than this !!!

AdvantagesHandling is good, Performance is very good, great looks, interiors complement the exteriors

DisadvantagesPoor rear visibility, Gearbox is bad ,poor suspension bushes

"Its not always easy to rate a car because you need to take lot of factors in consideration and finally you have to decide on your likes and dislikes. The pickup is poor and you won't be able to achieve much of accelaration in some seconds. Its not comparable to BMW300D but yes, i can say that it is not much behind it. You need to get the Exhaust enghanced if you are really looking for some great accelaration. Gives great performance if you ..." Read review

Cheap, simple bread and butter preformance.

AdvantagesSmooth engine, Servicing costs, Preformance, Racing History.

DisadvantagesIts a Cavalier, "Boy Racer" image, Outdated mechanicals.

"First impression's of the Calibre will have you rubbing yur hands with glee, it certainly looks the part and Opel have done a good job in transforming the humble Cavalier form a dull 80's rep mobile into something that dosent look out of place in a garage full of M3's or Cosworths of its time. I can imagine the sleek lines and race inspired bodywork must of looked out of this world when is was first viewed by the public. I have to say the design still ..." Read review

Quick review of Vauxhall Calibra 2.5 24v

"I have just became the proud owner of a v6 calibra and it never fails to put a smile on my face!! When looking for a calibra it is important to check for rust as the most of the older ones are prone on the rear arches. Most have damage to the leather on the drivers seat. Check when the cambelt was last changed but also check sensor wires. I had a 2.0 16v with 80k and full history but belt broke because sensor wire was frayed. The car doesn't handle the best but acceptable. I think the car has a cult type following, what cars on the road today have the nice lines and style? They are also getting harder to come by.

Quick review of Vauxhall Calibra 2.5 24v

"It is a quite old car, not to many safety or comfortable gagets inside, but still it got a very good engine. Those engines can survived for a lot, lot miles. But bodywork is very poor.... you need to take care for it if no rust will come very fast.

vauxhall calibra 2.5 v6

Advantagescheap high performance car for less than a fortnights holiday in the states

Disadvantagesnone that ive had

"...twisty country lane in a vauxhall calibra v6. Now I own one of these and all I can say is wow the car thats got less drag than some of the very expensive luxury models out there today. Now you can pick these cars up for next to nothing now a days but they are starting to get rare, so these cars are vast becoming collectors items, but remember to look around these cars with an extreme microscope as a lot of these cars gets thrashed within an inch ..."
