I actually believe I had more fun in my very lightly modded UK 2000 than I ever have in my 480(ish) Type RA. Just goes to show you don't need to have silly power to enjoy yourself.

Quickest - 996 turbo X50

Most fun - Exige 240S with nearly half the power of the Porsche.

My WR1 is easily the fastest car I've owned, but the most fun I've had was my Peugeot 309 Sri. I was 19 and drove everywhere like a complete d1ckhead. If I drove like that now I'd be in a box or in prison!

Haha, I have been there as well. Treated every journey (or excuse to make a journey!) As a rally stage.

Quickest car I've had was the Subaru. A Terzo running around 280bhp. Nothing amazing but I loved it.

I loved the look of the 309 gti and apparently thay were the best handling 2wd car of their time. My mate had 1 and it felt very fast although i was 15 at the time.

A Bordeaux Red, EDS Phase 3 tuned, C20LET-engined MK2 Astra GTE 16v running circa 279bhp and 260lb/ft. Had a Quaiffe ATB Diff and 6 speed F28 gearbox. Remarkably solid for and old Russelheim dustbin and went like stink. Great in a straight line but useless pretty much elsewhere. Still had much fun in it.

Somehow I think it will be the M135i but the R32 and 335d are both cracking, quick motors.

Ferrari 360. Heavy but the sheer pantomime of driving a prancing horse more than made up for that.
