Retro hot hatches are big business at the moment. If you have a clean, unabused example then you're more or less quids in. Why? Because by definition a hot hatch tends to attract a certain sort of driver..normally young guys who are more than happy to let the car demonstrate what it's best at...HOOLIGANISM!

We want you to tell us which 20+ year old hot hatch you love the most and why. We'll get your juices flowing with a few legendary examples!

We've got to start with the Renault 5 turbo, haven't we?

  • Lancia delta hf turbo, the little 1.6 fwd brother of the intergrale. awesome wee cars. so maybe it's a bit sketchy over 150kph, maybe it wheel spins when driving through a puddle at 50kph. and yes it torque steers horribly. but there's no car that I used to own and miss as much as the little hf turbo
