Additional Info: Given the code EP3. The UK cars were built here in the UK (Swindon), in fact I have read that the Japanese cars were also built here and then shipped over to Japan. The Japanese however had some nice little tweaks carried out to theirs once received in Japan and included chassis and engine upgrades (212bhp). Despite this the UK version won many awards/acclaims from almost all of the top motoring magazines/shows.
