A look back at the Vauxhall Senator (1987 – 1994) 0


The Vauxhall Senator: the ultimate car for the businessman in a hurry.

If truth be told, the Senator was really just a reworked Carlton decked out with a swish new body. The iconic front grille was certainly unique and gave the Senator a proper identity of its own.

Embraced by the UK police force, the Senator was a popular patrol car, capable of catching any errant speedsters and taking the place of the aging Rover SD1 3500 V8s.

One of the most eye-catching features of the interior was the futuristic digital dashboard, though admittedly this divided opinion.

The 2.5-litre may have been a little on the sluggish side, but the top-of-the-tree 200bhp 24V model was easily capable of 150mph (in manual form).
