Faster Than Most From A To B Round The Lanes In The 1980s — This is actually the Audi 100 Avant GL5E but that wasn't on the list. A remarkably good car, fabulous handling - the first car in which I genuinely could feel what was going on with each wheel. This held the record for the fastest I'd ever driven, 133mph, until very recently too. It was totally reassuring to drive and took me miles around the country, never missing a beat of its odd 5-cyl engine driving the front wheels.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Brilliantly balanced

Cons: The fussy engine noise outside

Stupendous Bit Of Classic Luxury By Colton

It needs a paint job and a motor rebuild. best performing car I've owned to date. One of the oddest things about it though would be that its a total dog off the line, but from 80km/h it pulls hard, I'... Read More
