Opel Monza GSE
A concept bearing the 'Monza' name might be previewing the future of Vauxhall/Opel design - as we told you about here - but this is the original Opel Monza. Looking at both, they're, erm, not exactly stablemates.
Still, it was the range-topping ‘GSE' that made its debut at the Frankfurt show in 1983, those letters standing for an especially generous trim line. So the 180bhp 3.0-litre six-pot engine remained as it was, but you got Recaro seats, a leather-covered steering wheel and an on-board computer. As standard!
