I drove one as a hire car in what was then Yugoslavia. 8,000 km on the clock & the cloth trim on the driver's seat was already worn through, the handbrake didn't work & the dash flexed every time you operated one of the switches. However, the redeeming feature which means that I voted "uncool" rather than "seriously uncool" was the engine which loved to rev - no tacho, but it felt like it would go up to around 7,000!

At least the dash switches and column controls are the same general design as on a Lancia Stratos


but it's not enough...

The car by itself is uncool. But if it were owned by someone with a sense of humour who enjoyed the fact their car was a running gag, it could be cool. Get a signwriter to reposition the badge on the hatch and incorporate it into the famous question: "Can you go as fast as a Yugo?"

Might as well go on foot. It's how you'll finish the journey so may as well start that way and save on the cost of the car.......


Seriously uncool, even as a gag!

I am ashamed to say I worked for a dealership in the cotswolds that sold these.
They were a pigging nightmare,cheap but as soon as they came in of the transporter we knew that nearly all of them would require warranty work fro the word go.I used to pdi them,the protective wax was the best thing about them and stopped them leaking.I used to do a huge amount of warranty work on them.
We even had a white one with spoilers and alloy wheels!!
The crowning moment for our salesman was part exing a lambo urraco for one(very true).
The lambo had been sat in a barn with pigeon crap all over it not running and the old boy who inherited wanted a cheap runabout instead of his 1963 landrover.
Not only did our salesman do the deal but he had £500 on top!
Needless to say the lambo was cleaned up and engine stripped down and got going, it sold for £12k
