Manta 400

Ok guys, you may have seen my BMW M5 Thread, well at the same auction is a Manta 400.

I know these were a rallying 'tool' but how good and collectable is this one?

I love the Mantas, but then again my first car was a gold 1.8 Berlinetta so I'm a little biased.

I don't know about the guide price, seems a tad rich for me.

Great cars, there is a guy here who I've shared a show with a couple of times from Barrow who has a georgeous white 400, but I'm with Dale on the value of that car, seems really strong..?

Very cool. I have owned 3 Opel Mantas; 1.8s Berlinetta Coupe, GTE Exclusive Coupe and a GTE Coupe.

BTW Are there not meant to be some triangular bonnet cooling holes on the 400?
