The Alcantara Recaros and functional dash add to a sense that this really is a serious bit of kit and not a hot-hatch pastiche designed to look good on the high street.

It looked the way it did so that it could do its job very, very well. It was, and is, a very special car that achieved greatness and is still raced today.
