I will vote for Renault Sport Megane Cup 250 (in the same metallic golden color) as its looks much better than all other competitors in the race & has also shown very good performance.

I will take the Subaru Impreza Cosworth - untamed and raw. The understated but seriously fast street car. And yeah, I will take mine in that awesome shade of dark grey.

What I wouldn't give to have the Subaru Impreza in India.
Prime Rival for the Mitsubishi Evo X, but should be a lot cheaper.
(in the UK, i thinks its around 7000 pounds less than an Evo)

Ford Focus RS500 or even the regular RS would do for me! Looks fast,is fast and is practical!
And i think Ford Focus RS500 is also the fastest front wheel drive car in the world, with the 100 in 5.6sec! That is blisteringly quick for stock FF car!



the regular Rs is almost as fast as the EVO X around the fifth gear track!

For me, it has to be the Golf GTI - awesome power, economical to run, and highly practical.
If I add design/looks into the equation, nothing beyond the Alfa Giulietta! A stunner indeed, and I reckon this model can really resurrect Alfa's sales figures.

TopGear UK recently did a cover on hot hatches. The link to the teaser video:

What's the background score? Its really the type of song that makes you want to put your feet down on the gas pedal!

I'll take a Ford Focus RS in dark grey and a rally-bred Subaru Impreza in the same colour

I chose Ford Focus RS500 because of its sheer pickup..

The Fiat 500 Abarth has to be the Hottest. The smallest car with 160 bhp is a handful.
I also love the Ford Focus & Subaru Impreza.

All drool worthy cars! The Alfa Giulietta Cloverleaf in scarlet red please! Looks stunning and goes like stink. The VW Scirocco R would be a close second for its understated aggression.

We need more of them in India! The Fiat Palio 1.6 S comes to mind, as does the Getz CRDe, even though it did not look the part. There is potential in the upcoming Fiesta hatch. Give it stiff springs, a neat body kit and re-work the gearing a bit, and yes the Fiesta S does sound good!

Subaru Impreza Cosworth. 395 BHP and a 0-100 in 3.x sec! If the fun of driving a family sedan Subaru legacy is anything to go by, this should be fun - 10 times more fun. I mean if they can make a family car fun, this may be seriously good.
