Wot to get


Scotteh

Recommended Posts

Well middle of next yr once ive finished the escort project with rachy, if she still wants to do it wen the time comes, im gonna be looking at getting some kind of 2litre turbo. ive been looking at calibra's, mr2's etc but ive been looking at the stats on the celica gt4, mainly the 94-97 model with the 4 lights, ive seen figures of at least 380bhp with work (obviously) but i wasnt sure if i wud get insured on a standard 1 first, but adrian flux have just quoted me £1003 :D with 2yrs no claims and being 20 wen i buy it.

 

wot 2 litre turbos wud u lot consider? excluding things like cossie since they r 10k and i def wudnt get insured on 1 lol.

the st205 gt4 (to give it its proper name) is a very capable car with lots of styling potential (good looking coupe) along with engine mods.

that one is roughly 550 bhp

 

stay away from claibres (yuck)

 

mr2 turbos are nice and quick but the gt4 got the same engine, four wheel drive and 4 seats.

 

i would say impreza, but even if you go for a cheap to insure UK model, its still going to sting you for more then £1k!

 

the others are gti-r, although theyre really ugly, they are great fun and fast too. insurance is the other problem there though

thats not a very good picture of that one, got the article in one of my old jap performance mag, and the colour is gorgeous

 

the only problme with the gt4, is that finding a UK one, is hard. Finding a 'good' UK one is almost impossible.

LOL at Scotteh, ya gotta forget about POD mate, twill be very different next year! But anyway, the 3 cars youve just mentioned IMO are 3 of the ugliest cars on the planet we live on! MR2 prob being my fave, but dont like 2 seaters myself.

 

Ever thought of a Seat Ibiza Cupra? They go like shite of a shovel and look great with it IMO!! I know its only 1.8litre tuirbo but hey, whats 200cc between races??
