B11 performance model?

Hi all,

I am familiar with the performance or at least the "sporty" models of the B210[GX's], B12 [Twin Cam Super Saloons], B13 [GTS's], etc, but I can't think of a B11 variant with a sport or performance package. Am I having amnesia or maybe there never was one? It can be from any market around the world.

Was there ever a "hot" B11 from the factory?

i believe there were a few.
i have an original 85 brochure for the U.S b11 and it only shows the SE and XE models as the more sporty models. I also found these pics on another forum.
they were called the 1500GX-R


and the Leprix



both seemed to have the E15ET engine.

That's awesome leadpaw, thank very much for bringing those to our attention. Very cool stuff indeed. I almost forgot about the B11 hatchback coupes.

Were they Japan market only?

ok guys...a quick update....

I did a full engine rebuild on my E15ET motor with a T25g upgrade & afm relocation....as i was about install it into the car, a buddy who bought my last b11 from me, begged me to sell him......and he paid my asking price....

it the second time he has done this sort of thing to me.... buy something from me before i even get a chance to have fun with it.........

i was suppose to put up some pics of the finished product...all i have now is a b11 leprix sunny without an e15et.....sorry guys

i am going to install a NA E15 motor for now......

future plans: I will like to install a GA16 "VTC" in it.....

I don't have the engine anymore....the guy took it before i even got to take a pic of it....

but what I can do for you guys is, take some pics when he has it fully installed and running in his B11....

I'm putting a stock E15 NA engine for now.....but as i said, I intend to put a GA16DE(VTC) with LSD box in to my in the near future....I've started to put thing in motion to do this future transplant....

I'm from Trinidad & Tobago........
