Nice 3500 V8 engine in the 2000 body shape minus the dreadful 2000 engine. The rest of the car was awful in my experience and a total nightmare to work on. As for the Heath Robinson designed front suspension, probably the most complicated set up I have ever seen. But as for the rear suspension - French designed De-Dion, what a hash up.
Having said all that, it did give a very comfortable ride if you don't mind driving a blamange.

Tragically, one thing I remember from my days in parts is the part number for the fuel filters on those - 604148. I also remember the workshop guys having hours of fun trying to correctly shim the tappets. If yours has an AED (auto-enrichment device) they were notorious for playing up too.
