The 114i has just 102bhp which must feel quite pedestrian.
Thats mad it's a proper hot hatch with such an undesirable badge on the back.
I'd have loved to have something with that kind of power when I started driving!
I started with a 65bhp peugeot so even the 114 would have been pretty special to me back then ..
