1976 Vauxhall Magnum Sportshatch

The 1976-only Sportshatch was based around the Vauxhall Magnum Estate but fitted with the famous (and slippery looking) front end of the HP Firenza coupe. The HP was meant to be a new sporting flagship for Vauxhall, with anticipated sales of around 2000 a year. In the end, however, just over 200 were built in total, leaving Vauxhall with a large quantity of its ‘Droop Snoot’ nose cones leftover.
