If Darth Vader built a Resto-mod project car – the RetroPower ultimate RWD Vauxhall. Taking a classic car and restomodding it to suit your unique taste is nothing new, but in the case of this anonymous customer of Retro Power ( https://retropower.co.uk/2020/10/19/project-vader-vauxhall-chevette-hsreplica/ ) they desired to commission probably the best made, most expensive Vauxhall Chevette in existence.

The only problem was the weather on the day Jonny Smith drove the 300bhp naturally aspirated 2.3 ‘red top’ with sequential Quaife gearbox; the rain, wind and fog were biblical. See how wide Jonny’s eyes go when out on the Welsh hill roads, trying to keep the flawless black ‘Vette on the tarmac and away from ditches.
