Ascona / Manta A
The new mid-range vehicle from Opel! Designed to be a stopgap solution between the Kadett & the Rekord, this mid-ranger established its place in the market quickly, achieving an unbelievable volume of sales and, more importantly, road performance. The Manta A used to be the Ford Capri?s biggest competitor, however, due to the iconic status of the Manta, the Coupé from Rüsselsheim swiftly overtook the car from Cologne. And the two Ascona limousines caused a sensation in the international rallying scene. Walter Röhrl wasn?t the only one able to take the corners side on in this rally car turned fire-starter?
