JD’s archives: Coupes de Grace Redux (Integra/Prelude/Cougar/Eclipse/2.5RS/Celica/GTI)
Despite all the hate rained upon it from Car Loungers, I think the Mk4 is very handsome in stock form and agree it has aged well.The only car there that aged gracefully is the GTI.. The Celica styling just never did it for me.
True ... I'm just expressing a bit of bias here as an owner ... the GC Imprezas though I think still look good for their age. Has there been considerable revision in the last decade, oh yeah, for sure, but you take a clean GC8 and man, it's a *very* good looking car ...The 2.5RS really does look old now though. Subaru has had way too many models after it to really make it seem modern. The Celica I'll agree with. It still looks like it could pass as a brand new model, maybe some slight changes, but it's still better than some of the **** out there.
I was thinking the same. I thought they were a lot quicker. I remember my Honda buddies (B18C5 EG/EK owners etc) praising the GTI with the VR6 and how fast it was.lol at the 7.7 gti glx 0-60. nice time!
