(1981-1983)



E21 Production Models

  



The 315 was a direct result of the energy crisis which hit Europe in the mid-70's. Using the old 1.6 litre engine but with only 75 bhp it was the E21 with the lowest power outcome of all. This did not make it a huge success among the many fans who took the E21 for the fun car it was. But basically it served its purpose well for the few who bought one - save for the fact that high speed and quick acceleration were not its great mark.
