VAUXHALL FIRENZA COUPE
2-door 4-seater coupé.
The first, very short-lived attempt to produce a Vauxhall 'Capri', using Viva HC running gear, but with a rounded, somewhat anonymous two-door coupé style. Not ambitious enough, or fast enough (as a rush to modify for 1972 proves...). In any case, at this time, Vauxhall's reputation was slipping all round. From 72bhp for 1.1-litre, to 104bhp for 2000s. 'SLs' were best trimmed and equipped. All engines were up-gunned for 1972 - see below.
