“I've owned two manta GT/e's both coupe's both standard...”

Written on: 18/04/2004 by Broomf5 (1 review written)

Good Points
Precise pinpoint steering, excellent handling (as long as you like steering from the rear)- just the way I like it. Coupe looks best, hatch ok. Very reliable. Ive owned two and they've never let me down once.

Bad Points
Serious chassis rot, floorpan rot, and factory sunroof rots seriously from the inside out.

General Comments
I've owned two manta GT/e's both coupe's both standard engines, both had covered over 100,000 miles and would still do 120mph (on a private test track that is!, the M3 I think it was called!)

My second Coupe A 1986/D reg had covered 155,000 miles when it was to rotten for another MOT.The car was thrashed around goodwood a few months before having the thrashing of a lifetime in one day and took everything I threw at it.

The way to go today engine wise seems to be the good old 2.016v xe or the rover V8.
