Citroens! Likes of the Xantia and XM (when was the last time you saw either on the road?)

Peugeot 405, 406, 605

E34 are a rare sight these days

High performance low volume models tend to become sought after.

In this vein, the Evo 1RS and the Galant 6G VR4 will be classics before this...

As a previous owner of one of these I loved it as a Grand Tourer...arguably the Skyline and Supra as its rivals were its biggest nemesis. Largely overlooked but what a beast!

Most of the cars listed in this thread would not be wrecked in a field today like the OP said.
What you need to do is go on to a website and search for cars listed less than €500 and pick out anything slightly interesting.

Some of these cars are at a stage where they can be bought for next to nothing, and will be thrashed about by uncaring owners. Some of the last or late Rovers were pretty good. It shows what could have been were it for the plunder of the company by the Towers consortium.

This in my mind.

Things like
Lancer Evo Tommi Makinen editions (5 and 6, not sure there were others),
309 Goodwood GTi (already getting hard to find),
Astra OPC Nurburgring editions (I do own 1 afterall),
Focus RS's (RS500 big earner)
R26 Megane's (think it was named this)
Golf GTi edition 30


405 is good call, Mi16. Not sure they were limited editions but a good car
Renault 19 turbo's are rare enough etc etc etc


Personally I don't think basic Focus ST's, Golf GTi, Astra OPC's will have same influence's on classic market as the old escort rs, gte etc. There is just to many in modern day, to me the markets way more flooded with these cars, where as 70's, 80's these cars were harder to come by for alot of families.

Tommi Makinen editions were run as the Evo 6 only even though the majority of WRC wins for Tommi came in an Evo 5 RS. A further development of the Evo 6 and in technical terms was dubbed the Evo 6.5. Tighter steering rack and upgraded turbo along with 'red' Recaro interior are the major differences between the 6 and the 6.5

Can you guess I used to own one
