Kevin , as far those moels you mentioned before , maybe they dint qualify to the list as they were special editions of their line and not a regular production line as sud was for everyday use.
i guess you haven't seen the magazine yet over there greek, some of the cars that did
make the list were far more one off/specials than the sud, or most on my list.
try the series2 peugeot 106 rallye that only had 500 in the uk?
for your (and anyone elses
) benefit here is the full ranking list
1. Renault Clio Williams
2. Peugeot 205 GTi
3. Renaultsport Clio 200 Cup
4. Peugeot 306 Rallye
5. VW Golf GTI Mk2
6. VW Golf GTI Mk5
7. Renault 5 GT Turbo
8. VW Golf GTI Mk1
9. Peugeot 106 Rallye Series2
10. Ford Focus RS Mk1
11. Honda Civic Type R Mk2
12. MINI Cooper Works GP
13. Honda Civic Type R Mk1
14. Citroen Saxo VTS
15. Vauxhall Astra GTE 16V
16. Ford Escort XR3i
17. Ford Fiesta XR2 Mk2
18. Skoda Fabia vRS
19. Fiat Strada Abarth
20. Alfa Romeo Alfasud Cloverleaf
as you can see from the list, they were all pretty much editions of a bigger model group, like the sud ti was just another version of a sud.
the talbot sunbeam ti sold very well over here, even the lotus version wasn't that rare.
and what about the delta integrale? why didn't that make the shortlist? i guess they were thinking more of small, front wheel drive cars.
i'm just happy that the sud still gets recognition to this day for its place in history, despite the rust issue
overall i didn't think it that bad a revue
