The price new was £4162.Vauxhall Cavalier Mk1 Command Performance."The Command Performance" was a sort of Vauxhall Roadshow in 1980 and was a mixture of trying to sell cars and light entertainment with Ted Rogers of "321" fame. The lavish performances cost a huge amount of money, which Vauxhall didn't have at the time, and resulted in very few extra sales. Dealers were supposed to issue invitations to prospective customers but most just took their friends & family for a freebie night out. Vauxhall Cavalier Mk1 LSThe last special edition was the Cavalier Mk1 LS and was only avalible for the last twelve months of Cavalier Mk1 production and was a mixture of L, GL and GLS trim. It was very much aimed at the Fleet Market.
