Q cars – what would you have?
The old Forester used to be the ultimate Q car. I soo wanted one, but driving with the knees round my ears was a major drawback. Small much?
Nowdays, for true Q status has to be a debaged T5/6 Volvo.
Instead of the forester, i bought and chipped a v70 T5. booooom! 😆
And you could get a full 3 seat sofa from ikea in it nae bother.Posted 5 years ago
Was always surprised how big an engine you could fit in a cavalier…..
My father once owned a s/h Audi 100 when he traded in his last ur Quattro. Whatever Dave Sutton Motorsport had done to that family saloon, it went like “a bat out of hell” as my mother once said to the vicar’s wife*.
*Not a euphemism – she did. V embarrassing for all concerned. Vicar didn’t care though – AFAICT only his wife believed in God….Posted 5 years agob rMember
Vectra 3.2 estate.
I had an old 405 Mi16 saloon, just looked like your average diesel taxi, but seriously quick. In fact most of my recent cars have been quite ‘Q’.
Omega 3.0, BMW 535i, Jag X-Type 3.0i – all plain colours and quite ‘used’. None looked quick, but all were.Posted 5 years agoI_AcheMember

I’m thinking more subtle than German, which will all be assumed to be quick (even when they’re not).
The old Subaru Legacy spec B 3 litre would be one.
Just need a sort of new-ish equivalent.
I once drove a Subaru Forester with an Impreza WRX engine in it, now that was a q car! Surprisingly easy to stall apparently due to the racing clutch that Subaru had fitted. I’m not sure if this model ever came to market or if it was just a play thing for Subaru UK as it was one of their drivers who I went out with. Must have been 7 or 8 years ago now.Posted 5 years ago
