Subaru Impreza Turbo – 208bhp

The best examples have been increasing in price for some time, but it’s still possible to pick up this icon of the ’90s in good order from as little as £3000. And with 208bhp to play with, plus all-wheel drive grip, the Impreza Turbo is one of the most entertaining cars of its era. Launched in 1994, the ‘blown’ Impreza marked a major turning point for Subaru, a company previously known for its farmer-friendly offerings. Top speed was 137mph, while 0-60mph took just 5.8 seconds. If you haven’t yet owned one, now’s the time.

I drove a few of those V6 Omegas; some in police trim, while working for Vauxhall Fleet; they were awesomely good fun.

In contrast, the V6 Calibra was a bag of poo due to the awful gearbox and clutch.
