If I remember correctly

S3 was the last Giugiaro

X180 was the first of the Stevens design but the non turbo version (SE was the turbo)

S4 appeared several years after that....still Stevens design

1 out of 3 Geoff!

 

X180 came as NA and Turbo. S4 was redesigned by Russell Thomson.

That's not bad for me......

I thought the x180 and se could be told appart by the perspex/glass 'rear deck cover'.....x180 didn't have it...se did....but that may well be something else I've 'heard'.....
Also thought the s4 was the Stevens facelift......

Ah well.....I'm learning too....:-)

X180 has carbs and was the original Stevens design updated later refined by Thomson in the S4 and further refined by Russell Carr on the late V8's. SE is EFI rather than carbs and does have the glass back which the X180 doesn't and has different mirrors, lovely low level spoiler and deeper sill ducts plus oil cooler ducts on the front bumper (plus 15/16 Oz Route wheels rather than 15/15).
