Peugeot 106 Rallye S1 – clean original car with 191k kilometers. Factory lightweight / homologation special (FIA Gr.N) with manual steering / no AC / wind-up windows netting a curb weight of just 826kg. The Rallye is a standout hot-hatchback with distinctive white-painted Michelin steel wheels and original deco stripes with red carpet shared by other Peugeot Rallye specials.
Neat car – with under a tonne to move, the 100hp 1.3 liter engine provides lively performance. Hailed in it’s day as an excellent drivers car.
Fast? No – but engaging weekend toy that would be at home on the Autocross track or drivers education days with the vintage / youngtimers. Or make your commute fun amongst the majority of commuters on autopilot.
