The Manta name was used by Opel from 1975 to 1988 to denote two generations of rear‑wheel drive sports coupes. Our example is one of the later second series B2 versions, in 2.0‑litre GT/E Exclusive spec. The Exclusive was comprehensively equipped with Recaro seats inside and an exterior body kit consisting of twin round headlights in a plastic cover, front spoiler, rear lower spoiler from Irmscher, side‑skirts and split rear spoiler.

Remarkably for a model renowned for being so entertaining to drive, this one has covered a mere 25,170 miles since new. This can be largely warranted from the history file. The service book is stamped up to 18,170 miles (September 1989) and selection of 1990s' MoTs then tracks the mileage up to April 2004, when it was 25,040. According to the SORN letters in the paperwork folder, the Manta seems to have come off the road during 2004. This was shortly after a dispute with a local garage about the quality of the work it had carried out (a letter about which is in the file). It has been SORN since then.

The paperwork folder also includes the owner's manual, Philips radio cassette player booklet, tax discs and assorted other paperwork. Four former keepers are noted on the V5C, with the last owning it since 1988.

The car starts and drives, but will obviously require an MoT and some recommissioning to be returned to the road. The bodywork displays some blemishes and areas where the paint has been touched up in a slightly different shade. The interior is in very good condition throughout.
