1981-1984 TALBOT Tagora specifications

1981-1984 TALBOT Tagora specifications Classic and Performance Car

Originally known as the Chrysler C9 project, but thanks to the Peugeot takeover, the big Chrysler became a luxury Talbot that no one wanted – Peugeot had the 604 and Citroën’s offering in the sector was the charismatic CX. So, the Tagora arrived as a combination of Chrysler and Peugeot engineering, and underwhelmed in the market place. Beyond the ‘duffer’ image, the Tagora remains a pleasant car to drive, and surprisingly rapid in V6 form with 165bhp on tap. Few survive now, but a cult following means their future is safe…
