The C30 never feels like it'll deposit you in a barrier, but it's a hell of a lot more involving than, say, that Golf R. In truth, the aggressive diff and brake set-up would probably be deemed a bit lairy for everyday use, but on a twisty road, it's one of the most entertaining cars we've driven in years.
It doesn’t look half bad, either. Those ‘eyebrows’ over the front arches and kick-up front winglets have been inspired by the C30 touring car, and there’s a double spoiler at the rear for added downforce. The cabin isn’t quite so successful – there’s more suede in here than a Britpop revival night – but the stitchy race seats are lovely, lovely things.
