love it, especially in Yellow or Black

it's not sub zero though, it has a quality about it that makes it stand out, aside from its ugliness, and it's rarity will always make it desirable.

Both that and the Lancia Hyena of the same time frame were great performers of the mid-nineties. I think the Hyena was a tadge quicker, and was a more attractive rounded shape imho. Both collectors pieces now.:

Sub zero.

But let it be known that I prefer lines to curves in my cars. The opposite of my ladies.

Not an Alfa :-(

As bad as the Arna for me. Dont like the RZ either. The back end is just wrong. it only looks ok from the front but every other angle it is horrible.

I've hovered between cool and uncool on this one before plumping cool - just.

It's a bit ugly, boxy, plasticky, (IIRC) had dreadful shutlines and is a 75 under the dramatic costume. But it is an oddity, rare and it exudes a certain air of self-confidence that demands attention but doesn't seem to care if you don't like it - which is quite cool.
