    Poor man's EVO IMHO and not cool. My mate had one back in the 90's - it broke down with alarming regularity!

    If you like it though, that is the main thing
    A6 3.0 TDI.

    My mate had his pulsar 6 years and it only broke down twice,a dodgy connector on an injector and the synchro went for fifth gear.He sold it 2 months ago and wants another now.

    Rare doesnt always mean cool, Metro's are thankfully rare!!

    EVO 6 Makinen - Now thats a cool car IMO.

    Dare I say it, but as fast as the Sunny is, it borders on chavvy!

    its cool if you think that there was a hot hatch out there in 1990 that had 227bhp and 4x4 standard.its not as good as more modern evos but it is a lot older.

    As far as I can ascertain;

    Power : 220bhp
    Weight : 1220kg
    Power/Weight : 183bhp per ton
    0-60 : 5.42
    0-100 : 15.26
    mile : 14.2
    Term : 97mph

    I think they're pretty cool

    Life begins at 140mph

    Cool in a Japanese 'Substance over Style' kind of way.

    Not terribly fast though until you throw loads of money at them, I think a bit of the standard 220bhp gets lost in the 4wd system...

    If 5.42 0-60 is correct i would say its quite fast for a car nearly 20 years old.Not many new standard Audi's can beat that.

    fit a bleed valve to up the boost to 1bar and fit an exhaust and you will see about 280-290bhp.thats good enough to get you to 60 in 4 dead and get low 12's on the strip if you know how to drive it.they dont cost much at all to get over 300bhp.

    If I wanted a fast car I wouldnt buy an Audi. Also emmission and safety regulations of 20 years ago are totally different to what todays Audis have to comply with.

    Just saying when they first arrived they were a bit over hyped, cost lots and quite a few were unreliable.

    Still nice cars, also kudos to the Japanese designer that had the balls back in the late 80's to fit that bonnet scoop to a small Japanese hatchback!

    So no one likes aggressive looking cars? when they come up behind you they look like they will chew you up and spit you out . I might get another one soon as a second car as the A3 is starting to bore me.

    Pre-dates a lot of modern day bonkers jap stuff so not strictly a fair comparison with hardcore EVO/Imprezas.
    Cool IMO, not sure why but cool none the less.

    Nearly bought one instead of my first G60 Corrado.
    Nissan was quicker, Corrado was better.

    Cool car.
