Previously owned: Metro GTa, Suzuki Ignis Sport, Suzuki Swift Sport, Peugeot 3008
Currently owned: Abarth 595 Turismo with Monza exhaust
On the shortlist: Alfaholics GTA-R 290, Cayman GT4, Metro 6R4
Rest of Europe: Alfa Romeo GTAm
Why I chose it: "I can't think of a car that makes me want to go for a drive more than this one. I seem to remember the previous advert for this car mentioning much of the work and the parts came from Alfaholics and I love Alfaholics. The reality of owning a real GTAm would probably be quite punishing in reality and that is what Alfaholics and those like them do for me, they sell a dream worth having!"
Why I chose it: "As much as I like the M600 and what it achieves, I can't help but wish Noble stuck to the formula they had with the M12. Without actually driving one myself, I cannot think of one thing that could put me off this car. Some will moan about the forced induction but I bet they wouldn't moan about it in an F40, a car this often gets a more than complimentary comparison to from the journalists. I had my eye on a yellow one (more later) but actually this blue works wonders for the looks!"
Japan: Mitsubishi Evolution VIII FQ330
Why I chose it: "I needed a family car, I'm from an Impreza household and found a similarly priced Spec-C and various other standout JDM models. There's just something about the Evo, maybe because it is different to the Impreza in subtle but important ways, or the looks... I'm not totally sure. I love them both and the decision was hard! This particular car has black out mods, make it very appealing though!"
Why I chose it: "First and foremost... it's yellow. Second, its engine sticks out of the bonnet (if there even is one supplied with the car?) There can be no mistaking where this iconic car comes from and you have to kinda love it for its honesty... and it is very yellow!"
Germany: Volkswagen Lupo GTI
Why I chose it: "I always wanted one of these and I am always jealous when I see one, as I haven't owned and probably will not for the forseeable future. I especially like the silver ones and the more standard the better!"
