    All group B cars are Sub zero!

    I used to know a guy who had a roadcar, he had to have an rally intercom installed it was that loud inside(now thats dedication).

    cool because it just doesn't care about refinement, its all about form following function, doing a job.... and very well at that. Also its a metro and when people see one go by you will never hear them say "pfhhh look at that METRO" theyre more likely to say what was that ??!!!

    Its cool.

    wicked car, loved it when i used to watch the rallycross, when it competed against the rs200, loved it then and still do today, think its the mad styling and the performance of it, very cool car.
