Body styles included two or four door plus an estate. The two door design was aimed at the coupe market with its sloped rear roofline. Early 1800s produced 77 bhp while a late update raised this to 88 bhp providing it competitive performance with rivals. The 2300 produced 110 until also receiving an upgrade that dropped power to 108 bhp. A version of the Magnum estate, referred to as Sportshatch, was offered in limited numbers, just 197. The Magnum was capable of 103 mph with a 0-60 in 11.4 secs. A faster version of the Magnum called the Firenza Coupe also nick named droop snoot because of its pointed nose was produced in 1976 in limited numbers (204). Powered by an uprated version of the 2.3 litre engine it produced 131 bhp and provided the Firenza with 121 mph performance and 0-60 in 8.6 secs.
