I had a 205 gti. It was a 1.9 in red, totally original apart from the engine which had the L.A.D Motorsport treatment. It went like stink and was surprisingly reliable, managed to get about 180miles out of a full tank!!!
Glad I never crashed it coz they were made of french tin foil and had a habit of setting on fire if they went over!
When we sold it 5 years ago and counted up the receipts, we'd spent nearly Â£9000 on basically an old banger!
L.A.D rang about a year later trying to buy it!
Great car, great design. A real shame that new cars must be heavy and safe now.
I have a drunken memory of a long weekend in Monaco about 5/6 years ago - 4 of us in a RS6 actually pulling away from a Ferrari 355 spider in one of the tunnels to Italy - I'll never forget the sound or the way my eyeballs shook
A truly awesome "family" car!
Will try and post a piccie up tomorrow.
