Pretty little thing. Reminds me of a poor mans version of an old Merc SL, does that make it cool or uncool? I cant decide yet

It is cool but for obvious reasons I hate it and would not go near it with the proverbial barge pole.

I prefer the coupe but that's still sub-zero for me. Pretty as a picture, oozes Gallic charm, distinctive. I can't think of anywhere it would look out of place apart from at one of those cruise affairs for the youngsters with the bodykits.

French cars are even cooler when tatty. I know a bloke with a slightly ropey DS and it is absolutely wonderful.

This is sub zero.

Very much as kb describes it. Charming, understated, incredibly at ease with itself without being either flashy or cheap looking. Roof down, wafty ride for a family of four, no rush.

And here's the swinging, killer vote. This car was nominated (sort of) by JimJr, aged 8. He had just been insisting I watched the video to Gangnam Style for the fourth or fifth time when he relented and gave me a break. No, I couldn't go sit down, watch this one....Olly Murs God help me!.....Quite a catchy tune though as it happens and I notice that much of the video features one of these. As it came into full shot, JimJr nudges me and says "I said you'd like this one. That's a cool car, isn't it?" A kid thinks it's cool.


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

What does Gangnam Style have to do with the Pug 504?

Alfa-less

Much preferred the coupe to the convertible but photos never do them justice, much better in the flesh. Not sub-zero but certainly cool

I did read it at least twice before I asked, I even googled Olly Murs because I didn't even know what an "Olly Murs" is and watched a video said person making a fool of himself while (badly) dancing to Gangnam Style.

Still, I don't get what the song has to do with the Pug. I guess I must be missing something vital.

Call me confused.

The only (extremely thin) explanation I can think of is that JimJr confused the Merc convertible in the video with a Pug 504 Cabriolet...

But something tells me I'm still wrong.
