The perfect mix
East meets West, low tech meets hi-tech
Do you want to have the best of different worlds and different periods? Just take an early Polski Fiat 125P four-door sedan (a licenced product of Fiat made in Poland), convert it into a two-door coupe and add some thrill by implanting the engine of a Volkswagen Golf R32. This engine has 241 PS with a torque figure of 320 Nm when stock, so it should move the circa one-ton body the way a little terrier shakes a ragdoll. It should do the 0-100 in around 6 seconds, I guess. The guys at Wolfsgruppe did a great job.
Some might complain about the big alloys and I must agree, a more vintage looking set would suit the car better, but bigger brakes wouldn't fit under the wheels with a smaller diameter. Look at the modified thermometer-style speedometer with a scale up to 320 km/h.
This car is the perfect mix of Eastern-bloc motoring heritage and modern "Western" technology. Just love it.
Oh, by the way, the 125P is often called "Bandyt" in Poland. This one is a Gangsta.
