    The 12 XL was the interim model between the old style 12TL/GL and the emissionised 12 1.4. The Special (read luxury model) bit being it having the bronze tinted band laminated windscreen, metallic paint, Gordini styled 4.5" wheels and a centre console. Hardly a limited edition really, but FYI it was the cover car of the July 1976 Wheels magazine. It was introduced in May 1976, production commencing in April.

    Now the 12LE, (LE for limited edition) that was a true limited edition, only 200 being produced, but that was at the opposite end of the 12 spectrum to the Special, being a stripped bargain basement 12.......
