205 GTI is cool, but i may be a touch biased (i have a gunmetal grey 1.9 in the garage atm).

It's my favourite looking hot hatch of all time. The waistline which swoops from the rear window down to the headlight looks fantastic when it catches light, the overhangs are tiny, and the wheels are barely contained by the arch extensions. From a distance and low down, the car looks like a big-footed puppy straining at its leash.

Handling wise, my favourite FWD of all time. The steering is right up there with an elise, it makes integra type-r's feel muted. The suspension handles bumps better than modern hatches, whilst still offering razor-sharp responses. Also, the car has the ability to make understeer non-existant. You can oversteer by lifting, braking, or simply steering too fast (great technique). I've used mid-corner bumps to slide the car, it's that confidence inspiring.

Ooh, and i should mention that it'll outbrake a Porsche 996. Yep yep, fantastic car.

Cool too!

Gutsy little pocket rocket with clean styling and great chassis.
