No, it'* not a Trofeo. The Trofeo had a slightly rounded rear end and the talil lights were two one inch wide strips across the top of the bumper. This is the previous model, the Toronado.


And beware the touch screen, it controls a lot of stuff, and when it dies, it is pretty much impossible to find a replacement.

Did the toronado change bodystyles in 1987?

I think that'* the year they redesigned the body and switched the name to Trofeo.

From what I know, the Trofeo was a package on the Toranado, like the SSE is to the Bonneville.
The Trofeo did have the touchscreen, but I'm not sure what years it was in, although I know that they had them in 1988 -1987 and 1986....
The restyle on the Toranado took place with the release of the 1990 model year.
With the pre-1990 Toranado I am not sure as to what all was done to the outside of the Toranado'* with the Trofeo package.

5 years ago I would have this off the bat, as my brother had 1988 Toranado and we did a lot of research on them, but now I kind am drawing a blank beyond what I said above.

I love Toronados. I know someone who lives quite near me who has two post 1990 Toronado Trofeos - both of which are pearl white! Lovely cars and despite the best efforts of this chap, extremely rare in the UK.

I had a 87 Toronado and I loved that car. It was fully loaded but the body style was different. The car even had a killer stereo system with a built in cb radio. That car was my baby until the spouse wrecked it and got his 1st dui :(
