They probably are. But for the conversion inserted into the Ro80, the V6 required the bonnet lid line to be modified, whereas the V4 didn't!

Has anyone mentioned the Mondeo Vignale? I'm sure they must have. After reading on another forum about someone who has one, I thought this must be the Ford idea of a modern 1600E. Hasn't caught on though as I've only just heard of it and it came out in 2015.

Volvo S60 R design is kinda close, no actual improvement in performance as the engine range is small but a good spec with individual interior and exterior touches not available in the other specs?


The culling of saloon cars by manufacturers over the years makes it difficult to get a match to a 1600E, possibly something like a 2.4 Accord EX, fast engine and a high spec would have kind of matched it.
