    This car, you can either love, or hate. It has a scary(some would even say ugly) ass to it, which puts alot of people off. However i have just bought one and thought i would share the initial shots i have of it. Dont mind the date, camera is fucked. Only 500 of these produced each year, and is often quoted as the best "Hot Hatch" around currently.

    Dont mind the lary colour ;)

    Vitals:
    BHP: 260
    Top Speed: 160
    0-60: 6.1secs


    Extras:
    Limited Slip Differential o_O!
    Xenons
    Recaro Seats
    MP3 CD

    Will get some more pics up, however here are some teasers!

    And some pics that look much better than mine (with spoiler and blacked out windows)

    Any thoughts from the OT mob?

    I personally am looking to black out the windows, along with glossing the alloys black. Im undecided on the spoiler.
     
  2. I like it but I like weird, unique cars so :dunno:

    Same as Martin. My daily driver is an old Honda CRX, so this would be a very welcome upgrade. Cool looking car, great performance specs (for what it is, obviously), and I'm sure it possesses a quality that most American cars over here could only dream of.

    I agree with the modifications you want to make as well. Keep it clean man!

    Very cool little car, akward looking but very cool.
    I dig it tho, nice seats, nice wheels, brakes, interior, etc.
    Again, very cool

    just hear me out
    those front seats look like they came out of an evolution....

    not sure if they are the same model, or just very similar as they both sport recaro's.

    regardless, looks like it's a blast to drive, what does it weigh?

    Not a bad little car. Might be a little on the expensive side for what it offers, but barely, if that. Has some excellent features. Great gas mileage for something turbo. Minus the rear end, I really like it. :bigthumb:

    I'm absolutely sure it's nowhere near as fast as yours but I've had my fun with it

    All yours is missing is the panoramic roof and it would be perfect.

    Very cool car. I wish the hot hatch market were bigger/ more popular here even though I can't participate. :o

    WTF rear end.

    I liked Renaults so much better back in the late 90's. This bubbly shit has got to stop. I want a car that looks like it's made for an adult dammit!

    Had Mine chipped up to 260 BHP!

    Next will be Dark Tints on rear with safetys on the front (stupid UK Law) and then probably get the wheels glossed black.

    Topped out at 157 few days back. Need to start running that shit on V-Power

    Took some shitty pics with my iphone:

    its a fucking hatchback...

    such a waste, they should have just made it into a proper sport sedan... I see that thing and I think little old lady on her way to the market.

    Renault made some nice looking cars in the late 90's. Not anymore, I'm afraid. What the hell did they do to the boot on that car? It looks like someone backed into a half-opened garage door.

    Looks good. The back looks like the front of some cars.
