Come on Citroen, make a road-going WRX STI beater

Come on Citroen, make a road-going WRX STI beater

Citroen is totally dominating the rally in a primo C4. Loeb keeps putting himself on the podium courtesy of the C4’s 300hp all-wheel drive competence. Where are the Subarus? Not doing that well with only half the points of Citroen. Ford is doing OK with the Focus, but we’ve got to wait a little while before we get the hot RS version that will do it justice (the XR5 is good, but not ‘rally’ good). Mitsubishi isn’t even in the WRC scene (though the Evos do dominate local rallying).

Maybe now’s not the time to be releasing a car that doesn’t have green, blue, hybrid or eco in its name, but, we all need something to aspire to.

Let’s not leave Europe out of the big auto bailout

When you see your competition across the pond getting a nice fat US$25 billion dollar bailout...I mean 'loan'...it's perfectly understandable...
