The Plus 8

1985

The Plus 4 is re-launched fitted with a Fiat 2.0 litre twin-cam fuel injected engine, 5 speed gearbox and Cobra style wire wheels. Maximum power was 122 bhp at 5,300 rpm with a maximum speed of around 112 mph. Price was just under £11,000.00. A road test at the time said 'Yes, the ride is harsh. Yes, it shakes, rattles and rolls over the lumpy bits of the road. But that, precisely, is its appeal. If you cannot understand all that, you never will, no matter how much I write.'
