Pride of place at the British International Motor Show held at NEC went to Jaguar's new XJ6, which had enjoyed enormous publicity even before this, its international launch. Appearing in Britain for the first time, Suzuki's stunning little RS1 concept car, a mid-engined two-seater packing a 1300cc twin-cam - a modern Midget in spirit. Bertone's four-seater Zabrus was based on Citroen BX running gear. Long doors opened vertically, the front seats rotated to aid access, and the rear hatch was extended well into the roof.
