Prototype Calibra Convertible
« on: July 21, 2016, 17:50:26 PM »
Just wondered if anybody had come across this before:



Its a prototype / concept convertible calibra from 1992. Theres even a advertising video here:

Apparently only one prototype was ever made, though there are some aftermarket conversions out there...

What are your thoughts?  ;)

The roofline is very similar to the coupe so still looks great!

Done properly, not like that green one that is floating around, it looks awesome. Google Calibra convertible on images, the one at The Crescent was the best by a country mile, now in Belgium I think!

Probably, Looks like it didn't go for £1600 after all as it is back on now:
