I always hear people say, calibra oh they are getting rare now so I came across this, I'm sure it's been seen before but yeah I suppose they are getting fewer now

Hiya!

I don't believe that site tbh, few and far between rather than 'rare' I'd say!

V6 clearly the best in the range  ;D ;)
Lewis Hamilton said that winning his first race felt better than having sex. Kimi's reply to that was, Maybe he never had sex.

What interested me was under the by engine section there appears to be 2.5 diesel registered, mistake or unusual conversion

Mistake, as I said earlier I tend to take it all on there with a bag of salt :)

In general the "howmanyleft" figures seem widely inaccurate pre 2000. Although a diesel Calibra was allegedly listed none were ever delivered. Obviously there have been a few conversions over the years so it may exist. However putting a diesel in a Cally is a sin!

Yeah I was pretty sure they were making a 1.5 diesel at some point, but never actually went through with it. I remember hearing that one back in the day when Callys were new!
Das it Miscbrah.

Aw I miss the old V6! They might not exactly be super rare, but they sure as hell aren't getting anymore plentiful!

I love my v6 hopefully have it back on the road soon after years of being stored and nearly scrapped a few times
