When the Ikara was released it created alot of interest in the motoring press.


The car magazines and books I sourced through ebay. The Car Styling Quarterly is available for sale, via the US.

There are links to the articles in the sub-menus on the left or click on the titles.

If you know of another Ikara article then please EMAIL Graham
