Ledorga has chosen the gayest car of the year. This is a well know website where 'gay' users (not a jury or comittee) choose the gayest car of the year. Last year winner was the Fiat 500C.


This year winner is the Peugeot RCZ



and the runner-up is the Audi A1



The most gayest brand is Citroën.

So, this has to be the reason French cars do suck.

and the runner-up is the Audi A1
Dumb and overpriced car.

I am not gay, but I do think some gay residents here would like you to rephrase that post. Did you miss the line below?.

This is a well know website where 'gay' users (not a jury or comittee)
How is that worse than misc. car of the year prize??

How rude. May I advise you to get some etiquette lessons?

That Peugeot looks awesome, and my next car is probably going to be a Citroën.

no. internet is full of people who post and report stuff from others, accumulating to the dreaded "bloggers" who do nothing else than posting and reposting, hoping to score a first post about the subject that might draw attention to their boring sites. I stick with my verdict that he needs to get a life.

Well I find both the Peugeot RCZ and Audi A1 to be very attractive cars, but there's no reason to buy the Peugeot over a TT or the A1 over a Mini Cooper.

Cars don't have sexual orientation. They're machines. Drive whatever you like. I think the Peugot looks pretty good, if not a bit of a TT copy.

As for the A1, I wish we could buy small cars with luxury features in North America. In North America the vendors seem to think only cheap people want small cars.

The back end of the Peugeot is too long and it looks odd (to me)


The Audi A1 is a 'same sausage, different length' design tweak of other Audis. It's got nothing on the old Audi A2

It'll be much easier if you just comply.

Good news, the A1 is coming to North America. And Americans do like small, expensive cars, look at VW Golf TDI and Jetta sales. The Fiesta is doing pretty good as well, and the Focus will at least be expensive. Americans just like cheap, crappy huge SUVs better.

Completely different price range in the US, and the 1 series is consistently rated as the worst BMW.

fuuuuuuuuuugly. A design trying just as desperately to be cool as whoever will drive it.

It's like two front ends crammed together. It almost seems to be emerging in opposite directions from the center of a mirror-image effect.

The biggest problem is the rear 'front end' looks slightly better as a front end than the front 'front end'.

Maybe if one were to drive it in reverse...?

Nah. Then it would need a proper rear end. And for the suck to be hammered out of the former rear 'front end'.

meh. Back to the drawing board. Two half-assed front ends mirroring each other does not a cool euro-car make.

Model Peugeot 308 RCZ
Engine type 1598cc, four cylinders
Power 218bhp @ 6000rpm
Torque 221 lb ft in overboost
Transmission Six-speed manual
It's a lot of power for such a small engine. And it's Peugeot so it wont break down if you remember to fill up the liquids every once in a while

The A1 (as other Audis and VWs) is genius marketing, they have garbage cars loved by the biased press. Their driving attitudes are second rate. audi even crashed the A7 mule while driving it
quattro is the marketing solution to their awful and not appealing driving fwd.

But the Mercury is not sold in Europe?

If the press, who drive cars ranging in price from millions of dollars to ten thousand, enjoy a car, I'm guessing it's a rather good one. At least Audi don't do the Mercedes thing of refreshing a car and giving it worse materials and quality and raising the price.
Their driving attitudes are second rate. audi even crashed the A7 mule while driving it
What? Mules get wrecked all the time. Heck, a 911 mule just wrecked a couple days ago. Does that mean the 911 is a subpar car? No. In case you haven't noticed, any car can get wrecked.
quattro is the marketing solution to their awful and not appealing driving fwd.
Yes, more traction and better handling is certainly a marketing solution Not to mention that it's nearly impossible to buy a FWD Audi unless you want to custom order it, at least here in America.
But the Mercury is not sold in Europe?
Mercury are not sold anywhere.

You are of course joking. Peugeot don't know how to build a reliable car. And I say this as a Peugeot lover, long time owner of many, and webmaster for the owners club. All modern Pug's are shockingly unreliable.

Luckily, because it's a Peugeot, a three year old one will have depreciated to a round £9.57. At which price it will be a bargain.

Dynamically it's nice. The inside looks good but is incredibly cheaply made and nailed together by underpaid Czech craftsmen.

It is nothing unusual, it is the one from the Peugeot 308, a cheap solution as the investment required to built the RCZ was so damn huge, mostly due to the roof. You get an average cabin but hey, the roof is 'unique'.

I am not even talking about the rear seats, they are even worse than the ones inside of Audi's TT. I mean, you can't even seat a 5 years old there.

Peugeot have a deserved reputation for reliability. Virtually all of Franco-Africa runs on Peugeots that just. Don't. Break. Down.

I'm trying to work out what's with the newer PSAs.

My car fitted with winter tyres breaks to pieces any Audi with the Quattro system.
Yep, snow. Isn't it what Quattro system is for?.

Not to mention that it's nearly impossible to buy a FWD Audi unless you want to custom order it, at least here in America.
That alone strengthens it as marketing pitch.

Mercury are not sold anywhere.
I expect, and hope, Lincoln to follow suit.

Yeah, the 504, 505, 205 and 405 were great cars.

Thank you very much. So, marketing pitch.

Good for you. Sure it is likely better than Quattro with standard all-seasons, but Quattro with snow tyres is nearly unstoppable.
Yep, snow. Isn't it what Quattro system is for?.
Not exclusively. Quattro isn't just one AWD set up either, there were at least 3 distinct versions when I worked at Audi. Not sure what has changed since (probably not much).
That alone strengthens it as marketing pitch.
Look at the US Audi model line then look at the UK Audi model line then get back to me. Pay attention to features and prices. Audi only offer the highest two configurations and pricing schemes in the US.
I expect, and hope, Lincoln to follow suit.
Lincoln are here to stay, for better or worse.

All of Franco-Africa USED to run on Peugeots. Like everywhere else they have switched to Toyota, Nissan and Honda. You will struggle to see any modern Peugeots in Africa and the 504's and 505's have really all worn out.

Wait, don't get to emotionally involved (we know, you did work there). If a Quattro is 'nearly unstoppable', what the heck does a Jeep qualify for?.

Maslow's hierarchy is strengh in this one.

Lincoln are here to stay, for better or worse.
Does anyone buy them anymore?.

I'm not emotionally involved. It was a job and when a better job came along, I left. I have no attachment to the brand, and I don't own an Audi and never have. In terms of unstoppable, I think you know what I'm talking about. [/QUOTE]

55-75, in various iterations.

Still ahead of most cars produced today, in some respects.

The original DS had style. Not everyone's style, but quite a lot of it for its adherents. It was the quintessential Cit to just about everyone for decades. The "new DS" looks like the result of "let's copy the Mini and give it our most popular model name!" board meetings. I don't dislike either the Mini or the "new DS," but it certainly isn't a DS. It's as far away from a real DS as the 1980 Thunderbird was from the 1956 T-bird. Same name, completely different car.
