Both saloons rather than hatchbacks?

Not a very interesting car, but I saw a VW Polo Dune for the first time ever today despite the last one being made 16 years ago! I didn't even know they existed. It made me think of this thread - apparently only about 600 were ever sold according to "How Many Left". I don't know why VW bothered making it (or why anyone would have bought one!!)

I'd love one of these, compact body, looks cool and a T5, lovely inside too

I’m not big into Volvo, but wasn’t this just a concept? Didn’t we get the watered down T5 version instead? I remember the Car Cleaning Guru having one on YouTube.
My mistake with the photo, the production version didn't have the arch extensions. I wouldn't have called it watered down as such though, as a 217bhp T5 engine in a fairly small light car should be plenty
I like the C30, but 217bhp and 1450kg are 'warm hatch' territory at best.

I mean, we just had someone post a convertible on the previous page. I think we can safely say we've exhausted the topic by that point.

I did catch the hatchback bit, but only after posting.
The R25 was defo a hatch, we had one albeit a wheezy 2 litre variant...

I think power wise they were fairly competitive at the time

Sadly there were only a couple built. You could get close with one of these https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giocattolo
But even these are rare.

Part of my lottery win plans are to rescue a knackered sprint and get the good people at retropower to build me a 6C
(Hopefully better built than the one at Arese)

Off you pop then, no one forcing you to be here. Just because no one replied to your other trolling post.

Fiat 696 Edizione Maserati - never seen one but I’d prefer one to an AM Cygnet.

I'd really like a c30 t5. Always thought it was a bit of a missed goal not to have used the twin charge 2 litre as used in the polestar s/v60s in the v40. Would have been a cracking a45 amg competitor
