|Can't afford a brand new hot hatch? No worry, older cars are|
just as good
Happily for us, hot hatches still wear normal car badges on them. This does mean that they tend to lose their value at a somewhat alarming rate; simply because they aren't sporting a Germanic badge. So I decided to have a hunt through the car ads today, and see if there were any bargains. Here is what I found...
RenualtSport Clio Cup 182
This rather handsome looking thing is the Renault Clio Cup 182. Rather astoundingly, it has 182bhp which means it will get from 0-60 in 7.1 seconds. That may not be lightning quick by todays standards - diesel saloon cars are quicker these days - however its the feel the car brings that makes this such a gem to blast down your back round. It's also great at raising a rear wheel off the ground for maximum lift-off oversteer fun. This particular example may have slightly scuffed rims, but everything else is in shape. Only £1,995!
