2.3 litre OHC
The Vauxhall Equus concept (Equus is Latin for horse)
was a sharp and angular concept which was revealed in
1978, at the height of the 'wedge design' phenomenon.
The Vauxhall Equus concept, developed under the guidance
of renowned GM designer Wayne Cherry, was based on the
Panther Lima chassis and powered by a front-mounted 2.3
litre OHC Vauxhall engine.
At the time of its introduction the Vauxhall Equus was
touted as the sports car of the future. But as it never
went into production there's no way of telling how successful
it would have been. Chances are it's controversial design
would have been too polarizing to make it a bulk seller.
And by today's standards it looks incredibly dated.
