A semi-popular car designed by Opel and sold under various brands by GM, including Vauxhall and Holden from 1990-1998. It was somehow overlooked by many markets in favour of close rivals the Toyota Celica and Nissan 180SX, despite its value for money and impressive looks.
Mechanicals were based on an earlier GM model which was apparently known for its tendency to not work very well all the time.
The 2 door coupe was sold with a range of configurations including an 8v and 16v inline 4, 24v V6, and WRX-eating Turbo 4 with AWD.
The calibra is gaining popularity as a second hand car because of the impressive specs of some configurations.

'Mars bar' or 'Donor car' manufactured for the purpose of supplying engines to better models of vauxhall, in particular the 'Nova'

You open the 'mars bar' wrapper and take out the 'chocolate' or the engine in this case and throw the wrapper 'or calibra' away.
See my 2.0 16v turbo engine, thats from a calibra that is!
