SOTW: PEUGEOT 106 RALLYE
How to make 1.3 litres, dodgy decals and painted steel wheels cool
After all, who needs displacement when you've got 100bhp of screaming 7200rpm fun from your 1294cc four-pot. Okay, so you'll take 10.6secs to reach 60mph from rest, but you should have a heck of a lot of fun on the way. More so, as conventional wisdom has it, than in the 1.6-litre 'series 2' car.
Don't expect a lot of kit, mind you. This is definitely one of those cars that's more about what you don't get than what you do. What you don't get is power steering, electric windows, alloy wheels or ABS (though this last was one of two optional extras).
Okay, so this particular example looks (how to put this politely?) moderately foxed, but then a clean example of a Mk1 Rallye could easily set you back a good couple of grand, and it does at least seem as if the issues with it are cosmetic. And it would be churlish to expect an 800-quid car to be in concours condition.
