Nissan Pulsar GTIR-B
Like your cars fast? But prefer them to look slow? And a bit awful? Well roll up – this is the Sunny-based Pulsar GTI-R, homologated under Group A regs for the WRC. It weighs 1190kg, has a close-ratio gearbox, ATTESA four-wheel drive system and a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine. It’ll get from 0-62mph in around five seconds and go on to around 145mph, surprising pretty much everyone as it does so.
