    The only car I've bought that was directly due to rallying was an Opel Manta B coupe back in the 80's. I was a massive fan of Brookes and McRae and adored their battles in their Manta 400's in the BRC.

    Later I had several French hot-hatches because they were the most fun to drive. But my dream was an Integrale.

    Then when Ford finally made a decent car - the Focus - I've had three of them: an ST170 & two ST225's (which were maybe rally-influenced with them winning the Manus in 2006 & 2007).

    As for now I dont think I would base my car purchase on rallying. And I wouldnt have a Hyundai for free.

    They are good cars nowadays, i thought the same, based on some bad experience and seeing ugly and rusty Hyundais...then i used a i40 and owned one for 4 years, spacious, cheap and for that money quite comfy. Needed one with the same space and ground clearance and had to get an Outback, they are still on the ground with their prices, unlike Hyundai in that class, sister company Kia offers the same for less. Some old hothatches from Germany and France for trackdays and ice driving.

    I have a Seat Leon (the previous gen), which beat out the Mazda 3 at the time, and currently weighing up a newer Leon, a Fabia or Octavia RS and an i30N.

    Any of these directly influenced by rallying? (Particularly the fiesta?)

    Since 2002, Peugeot 106 S16.
    No comfort, not many extras, very tiring on the highway, but so fulfilling to drive on the twisty roads in my area. If you learn to drive fast this one, you can drive anything. Big school!

    The reason... it is obvious...
