1989 Lancia Y10 Turbo 1.0 turbo (85bhp) from UK and Ireland
Nearside CV joints (inner and outer).
Fastest 1 litre around... Can be made to go very quickly very easily, just a bleed valve will often see 120bhp...
Cute car, plenty of charector and you won't see another one for miles around...
Just slips in under the tax limit... £100 for a whole year!! And performance that will see off most 2 litres...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The Lancia Y10 Turbo is not the fastest 1-litre around. Check the stats.
Lancia Y10 Turbo 1050 CC, 0-60 9.1 seconds, 112 MPH max, 85 BHP and rubbish handling.
Daihatsu Charade GTTi 993 cc, sequential injection, 0-60 7.7 seconds. 116 MPH max, 100 BHP, excellent drivers car.
I have owned both cars, and the GTTI is on another level.

You have not driven a good Y10. Yes the Charade was more highly tuned from the factory. The Y10 had elements of Italian lacklustre about it, but given a little bit of fettling the Y10 is a lot of fun. The handling is far better than it feels initially. You just have to have the balls to commit and then the car pays you back.
