Rapport Forté.jpg

Rapport Forté. 1980–3 (prod. n/a for convertible, 1 estate). 2-door coupé–cabriolet, 3-door estate. F/R, 3442, 4235 cm³ (I6 DOHC), 5343 cm³ (V12 OHC). Wedgy, futuristic (for 1980) coupé with folding hardtop roof, designed by Chris Humberstone. Front section would raise, revealing headlights beneath. Jaguar XJ Series III base. The vehicle aimed to fill a gap for a British sports car that had the refinement of an Aston Martin, but modern lines. Management difficulties meant only a handful of cars were made and Rapport went bust. A single estate was built in 1983 by Patrick Motors Group.

Manufacturing location: Woking, Surrey, England

Marque: Rapport
