Additional Info: Great mid range acceleration. Originally advertised with a 0-60 time in the low 7’s, most will have it closer to 8 secs. A 1990-1992 4wd version called the 21 Turbo Quadra was also built, same power as the 2wd car, a little quicker off the line due to the extra traction, but a bit slower towards the end as most of the advantage of the 4wd is countered by it’s extra weight.
