    There were 1,585 Wind sold in France in 2010 and the Gordini version has yet to be launched.

    I too like it, the standard version, but alas it is not a practicle family car!
    But really, a Gordini? Another example of cheapening an iconic brand!

    i agree re: Gordini badging. Even the RS Clio Gordini is a cosmetic make over only.
    The wind would a cool little machine to offer here. I cant see any direct competition, mazda MX5 maybe .

    The fart gag potential is endless...especially if you're overtaking.

    Otherwise, it could also get a bit breezy with the top down.

    They can also travel very fast, especially in a cyclone.

    Etc, etc.

    I dont mind it... Return of Fuego door latches

    Lower it a little, some RS Clio wheels (and an RS Clio driveline!) and it would a fun little jigger.
