1987-1994 VAUXHALL Senator specifications

1987-1994 VAUXHALL Senator specifications Classic and Performance Car

And here it was, the ultimate Vauxhall for the ultimate businessman in a hurry. The Senator might have been pure Carlton under the skin, but the imposing new body with cheese-cutter grille gave it a presence all of its own. So, its no wonder that traffic police took the big Vauxhall to their bosom, happy that they’d finally found a replacement for their ageing Rover SD1s. Digital dashboards were an acquired taste, and the 2.5-litre model was a little sluggish. Pick of the range is the 200bhp 24V model, which in manual form, will hit 150mph given a long enough run.
