Poor man's Porsche 911
The Hillman Imp, baby car (1560 lbs) of the Rootes Group. A true driver's car. First built in 1963, it had many innovative features. Last one out: 1976. Sprightly with its Coventry-Climax derived engine. Really fun to drive. Remarkable gear shift. Great road-holding ! The rearmounted engine (170 lbs.) is all aluminium alloy, with an overhead camshaft. It has all-independent suspension.
