TR7 Sprint. It just seems so right to of made this.

 

BMW E30 Estate 3 door. Lancia HPE for the 1990's.

 

Ford Granada V8. Plenty of room in under the bonnet. Other markets got it.

 

Opel Monza drop top. Think of it as a Lidl economy Bitter.

I don't know why Renault didn't put the Fiftie into production. Surely with the success of the Bini, Beetle and Fiat 500 there would be some willing buyers for a 'new 4CV'? Or at least more than there were for the Avantime and Vel Satis.

I always wish that the UK manufacturers had made more 2 door versions of medium size saloons in the 50's 60's. There are very few, Sunbeam Rapier being a coupe version of the series Minx for example. Ford also managed with the Mk1 and 2 Cortina, and the Classic. Can't think of a single BMC though.

You could buy the Mk 2 MX5 coupe in Japan couldn't you?

 

Anyway, I think they should have made a Peugeot 405 Mi16 estate. If I don't lose my marbles completely I might do one myself.

Dacia got quite close, didn't they?

Anyhoo, I'll add a Citroen Visa convertible, but with the 652cc twin pot engine- a kind of 2CV replacement, but not quite. It would have been a proper pov-spec base model with vinyl upholstery that superheats in the summer sun.
