Cars that need a Reboot: Part 2

By topgearsingapore, 25 June 2021

We can't shake our love for some cars. Even if they're old or sometimes forgotten. We’ve actually covered some cars that deserve to be revived in our previous list which you can find HERE. But of course, that list doesn’t even begin to cover a fraction of the magnificent cars that should be given a new lease on life. So here are some other legendary cars that deserve a reboot.

Lancia Delta HF integrale "Evoluzione"

This beauty is the Lancia Delta HF Integrale “Evo”, a Group A rally special that was immensely successful in the late eighties and early nineties. This homologation model is powered by a 210hp 2.0-litre engine that sends power to all 4 wheels. Lancia has long since left the rallying scene, but these cars remain highly sought after. Lancia, if you’re listening, we’d like a new one.

Jaguar XK

Granted, Jaguar has used the “XK” moniker on several vehicles, dating all the way back to the 1950s with the beautiful XK120, to the raucous XKR-S GT in all its supercharged 5.0-litre V8 glory. But it's been nigh on seven years since the V8 XKs have left the production lines. Jaguar initially intended to make the successor of their XJ saloon an EV, and we’re not opposed to that treatment for the XK. But it's got to be something really special.

Chevrolet Chevelle

Not exactly relevant in a Singaporean context, but you can’t blame us for dreaming can you? The Chevy Chevelle was a car that had a brief tenure from the mid-1960s to the late 1970s. How brief, you ask? A 14-year production run, which was a shame.

We all remember Dominic Toretto in that second-generation red Chevelle at the end of the very first Fast and Furious movie, driving off into the sunset. A fifty-year hiatus is long enough, Chevrolet ought to revive that namesake. And we want it, we want it in Singapore.
