Snapped a couple of pictures of these 2 cars in the p-lot at work.
Which would you choose to drive around in?
It's obvious which is which!
Also post any info or experiences you have with either.

1985 Opel Manta i200
The i200 was a strictly limited edtition model, made by Irmscher to homolgate the Opel Manta into the FISA 'Group B' Rally category. The 2.0L engine received special treatment to increase power output to 136bhp. The front lamps were replaced by 'twin' items and a large rear spoiler was added, both taken from the Manta 400 model. A completely new interior was fitted featuring an Opel Blitz design woven into the fabric of the Recaro seats. The models were considerably more expensive at the time than a standard GT/E and thus very few of these cars were ever made in RHD. Due to the i200's group B elligiblity, they have become very collectable.
