I've had a 106 Rallye for a year now, its a great car, but probably not everyones cup of tea!
The 106 Rallye is a real drivers car. If your after a comfortable motorway cruiser, forget it! But, if your after something a little different and a great driving experience, you can try and track one down.
The specification of the car is as follows:
3 door hatchback(available L,M,N - White, red and black)
1.3 8V fuel injection
5 speed close ratio gear box
Lowered and stiffened suspension
Front disks, rear drums
Michelin white steel wheels
No power steering!
No internal sound proofing.
Radio cassette, front speakers
The 106 Rallye is the basis for a Group N rally car. This is the reason for the sparse interior, hence less to take out for competition use.
It's quite a noisy car to drive, but the noise is a satisfying one, especially when you take it up to 7000 revs!
The Rally handles brilliantly, and is probably as close as you'll get to a road going go-kart!
Acceleration is pretty good, and it will go on to 120mph(if you are on a track!) I've found the car to be very reliable and cheap for maintain and insure too.
If your looking for one, I would seriously advise spending as much as you can, and finding one with fairly low mileage. White ones are generally quite easy to track down. Reds and blacks are much harder to track down.
Avoid cars that have been modified too much. Stainless exhausts, especially Magnex are a nice extra, but other than that stay well clear. Chips and filters can cause cars to run down on BHP!
I can guarantee you'll enjoy driving the Rallye, especially on B roads.
Go ahead and join a little known exclusive club!
