Bloody hell, you could've picked a better picture than that Federalised one. It looks bloody awful

Not fast enough to be sub zero but still cool though.

CRV/Jaaag

It's not fast enough to back up the styling and its reputation ain't great. For me it's on the cusp of cool.

Spawned Lancia's second best looking rally tool. the 037. Which transferred bits to Lancia's third best looking rally tool, the S4.

Therefore very cool!

Previous post erased, but it was in the trade joked at as being the Monte Python of a car?

I think the lack of outright power was a positive in my book - supercar for the average man. Combined with delicately muscular looks (does that make sense?).

I think even the US version is cool.

Cool. It's a lovely, if flawed, thing.

+ Looks to break a hard man's heart
- Hardly any brakes

Most Lancias are cool, as long as they aren't in a bin bag. Personally speaking, I think the Beta Coupe just edges this one.

i love the second profile pic of the blue Monte, but cover the nose with your finger (where the black strip is) and i think the car would look a tad better proportioned if the nose was a bit shorter.

Anyway, going for cool on this one
