Arghhh...my eyes! They burn!

My great aunt had an Allegro. We drove round in it when I was a kid. She was half blind and more than half deaf. Riding over a grassed roundabout was a particular highlight.

Slightly off topic but a friend of mine owned an Austin Allegro for a while. It wasn’t the Equipe model though. He replaced a door from a scrapper and “resprayed” it. Trouble was he wasn’t very good with a spray gun, painted the door the wrong way up and the runs in the resulting finish went from the bottom upwards but made for an interesting topic of conversation.

I read the Telegraph on a Saturday where they do a good motoring insert.

I must have terrible taste as I love both the Panda Antarctica and the Kung Fu Panda.

Re: The 15 worst special editions, 3 of them are Pandas!

Panda owners should revere the Allegro. After all, it was the Allegro that first featured the Squircle as a design statement (although Austin used the term Quartic to describe their squircle-shaped steering wheel).

An old friend of mine had a metallic green Allegro Vanden Plas. If you thought the Allegro couldn't possibly be made any worse, then google the VP version. Noddy's car writ large. (But at least hers wasn't in hearing-aid beige...)

Ah, the vanden Plas.

Let's stick a rolls Royce grill on an allegro! Fantastic idea.

It looked like one of the pigs from angry birds

The Corsa "limited edition" should be on there due to the hilarity of the misused name....

Anyone else think that 1998 Rover looks way better than most Rovers? I mean, it's actually quite a nice looking car. Colour me amazed.
The BRM rover wasn't just a tarted up special edition by any means, it was based on the "hot" model as it was at the time, had lovely 50's style seats and brushed aluminium inserts all over (including door pulls iirc) but also featured lower suspension, unique damping and most impressively of all, a close ratio box and limited slip diff.

The Felicia fun was also a fantastic special edition.

Proof this article was written by the clueless.
