Subzero without a doubt; Dani knows perfectly that its my favourite hot hatch ever alongside an Opel Kadett GSI 16V or the Vauxhall Astra GTE 16V

Once I dont have the permission to post the pics, and wishing not to make Dani angry (Dani knows quite a bit my behaviour), Ill post my favourite; here we go



The Vauxhall Astra GTE 16v or the Opel Kadett GSI 16v

Im as crazy as Ive been thinking many times to see a Kadett on the street, and loan it with the vectra that I own although the vectra is fast, newer and in much better conditions

The 1.3 Rallye was my very first car! Very light & nimble and what an awesome sound from those 2 twin-choke Weber carbs! Had a lot of fun with that car

But now on-topic: The GTi is very cool, but not sub-zero.

It's not the prettiest, but it's definitely a neat little car. Cool.

Of course I adore the 205; in fact its written it in the page before, and mentioned also that the 205 alongside the Opel Kadett GSI 16v/Vauxhall Astra GTE 16v are my favourites hot hatches although IMO the R5 GT Turbo deserves to be subzero among a few other hot hatches such as the pug 309 GTI 16, the pug 306 GTI, the citroen ZX 16V (167cv)

i think especially here in europe, this car is properly cool (as long as its not riced). The cool wall was once created to say wether you looked cool in a car, not wether u liked its performance or looks or anything... basically you look pretty darn cool in one of these (as long as ur not over 30 or 35 of course ), for a students' car its right up there...

Yeah, as far as I know every model was designed by Pininfarina, I mean; the 3 door 205, the 5 door, and the cabrio; BTW I dont understand the pug´s policy being faithfull with Pininfarina for 20 years or so and with very brilliant results in terms of shape and looking, and nowadays making horrible cars such as the 207, 407, 1007, and so on.....since the 306 era pug has changed, not only the cars apperance, and of course; backwards
