JAVELIN AMX £3,250
Fighting gamely against the dominance of America's Big Three, American Motors make a bid for their share of the speciality "personal car" market with this sporty four-seater fastback coupe. A big rear spoiler helps to keep down the rear wheels which transmit the torque from V8 engines which range from 5 to 6.5-litres, giving a peak of over 250 b.h.p.
