Well, they don't sell them also in U.A.E but these cars imported from Japan,, it is 2.0 engine 16 v. with good power, it also comes with 2.5 247 v 6 cy.

I am buying it for daily driving, so I don't know which car to buy,, I tried this car its funny and great handeling and good power,

thanx guys for sharing

2ltr 16v is a good engine. Head designed by cosworth and can make big power with the right mods. I ve seen one on a dyno with throttle bodies and all doing 254 bhp at the wheels . thats a very good output for an NA 2ltr engine. Calibra chassis not the best though. Based on the Vectra it flexes too much, so get some strut braces for it. Also brakes are not the best. Use front brakes of a V6 instead. V6 and turbo were the best choice. They are prone to rusting at the rear arches so have a good look. OOh and do not fit an induction kit on it. it lowers power and torque on them.

there are soo many types of Calibra's..

my little brother is seeking for a calibra as well.. get the 2.0 16V DTM..
strongest engine.. but isn't that powerfull..

but personal i rather choose an E36 325i or something..
