Pros

fun factor, performance that upsets some big cars

Cons

fuel consumption

55

Best Retro Hot Hatch Out There For The Money And Easily Tuned To 200+bhp — blistering performance even on the standard t2 turbo turned up to 15psi it upsets alot of more powerful cars, go further and change the cam with a bigger turbo and fully rejetted carb and this car is capable of hitting 12 sec 1/4 mile times no probs due to a light weight of 830kg. build quality aint the best but also aint the worst, very thirsty on petrol but is by far the most fun i reckon you can have in a fwd car. defo the best retro turbo hot hatch and £/bhp cant be beat

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

easy to drive but very light so wach in tide turn can be difficult to control

Cons

the exanger can blow easy,

35

Love It Give Me A Lot A Fun — the car was light so easy to drive i use to do rally in the south of France. the phase 2 has few change including a watercooling to the turbo charger witch extended the life of the turbo, a new ignition system witch permited 500 rpm higher. this change boost the engine to 118 hp 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 second. in mine i did some few change but minor because the rallye group N rules doesn't let you do any change from the original exept safty (brake, suspencion...) but i did a few like replacing the exchanger for the Turbo from a lancia integral who they look like but much stronger

Pros

Hoot to drive

Cons

torque steer

35

R5 Gtt — Strange little boxy motor that was great fun in GT Turbo form. Hoot to drive with dollops of torque low down. Torque steer was a bit of an issue epecially on a wet day. Becoming rarer and rarer these days. Watch out for sagging doors which was common and the usual turbo fables.
