Two versions were made. First was the 630CS, which here in The States would be a Gray Market Special, as none were certified for U.S. sale. It was powered with a 3.0L SOHC 4bbl I6 that made 182hp and 188tq. Its carburetor was made by Solex.

The U.S.-certified version was the 630CSi. It had a 3.0L SOHC EFI I6 that made 176hp and 185tq. Its injection system came from Bosch. Shifting duties on both were handled by a standard 4-speed Getrag manual or an optional 3-speed automatic. Zero to sixty times were in the 11 second average range with all versions. For late 1978, the 633CSi replaced the 630.
