Maybe biased here cos ive had both an s1 and now have an s2 rallye. Autocar said they are the caterham 7`s of hot hatches. You can feel everything thats going on in those cars when driving them hard, a true driving experience.

my choices are a bit contraversial but you know it makes sense:

saxo vts - fast, fun, cheap, and what can match it for price and fun nowadays??

clio 16v/williams - fast, fun, cheap,

R5 GTT - scary

golf GTi MK1 - hot hatches would not exist if it wasnt for this car

civic type R - kickstarted recent hot hatch wars meaning more power for less

no corsas get a look in for me because they handle poorly and are just slow.

Clio V6 is not a hot hatch, i would put in a specialist car catergory

also the Sunny GTIR, that goes in the same group as the Escort Cossie, Celica GT4 etc, what i would call high performance cars of their time

ermmmmm for starters a VTS is 9-10k brand new , its got 120bp

for a LOT less u could get a car to much its perforamce and some even quicker, 10k would get you a older escort cossie , GTIR which are double the bhp and perfromace of a VTS

yeah but you can get a mint R reg VTS for 3.5-4k. I cant think of anything that isnt really old that gives better performance and handling out of the box.
