Aww, it’s like ‘My First Rally Car’.
Don’t be fooled by its diminutive proportions – we’ve got a small lad in the office and he might be the hardest charger among us.
Also, at the risk of rehashing the old David v Goliath, giant-killer tropes again, remember that racing is never about who has the biggest car, even considering the big engines that tend to be tucked under the bonnet. The Mini won the Monte Carlo rally four times on the trot, even if it was disqualified for the wrong type of headlight filament (we wish we were kidding).
It’s much the same with the Renault 5, which started off as a way to move the masses physically and ended up – thanks to the plentiful fun and essential character of the high-performance versions – moving us emotionally.
