In a bout consisting of only letters and numbers for names, I give you the barcode of all barcode match-ups.

Our first 3 time returning champ after an underdog defeat of the E36 M3. Running on emotion.

The GTV6

vs.

The challenger, this car has been the car of legends. Mythical stories of untold performance thresholds. The car the was built just to be able to fly through air against the world's greatest cars. It's stillborn competition young sibling was claimed to achieve 0-60 in just over 2 seconds.

Ladies and Gentlemen the Ford RS200

FIGHT!!!

RS200.....I would rather have one of those than 10 GTV6's.

The RS200 wasn't stillborn. It was fully homologated. And for what it's worth, the road cars (excepting the 2 dozen Evos) only had 250hp and do 0-60 in about 6.5s.

The eye of the beholder I guess. Of all the things I like about the GTV6, its looks is really nowhere on the list.

The RS200 sucked, but It still wasn't stillborn.

If the last fight didn't teach you anything, you should have picked up on this truth about cars.

It doesn't matter xyz, it matters what xyz is to you. some are all out performance, some are the lovely sound, some are stunning good looks, it's exclusivity.

whatever each of these cars are to you, that is how you vote.

To me these cars are about equal (slight edge to the RS200) The beauty of the Alfa with the amazing sound and the performance and quirky-ness appearance of the RS200. Both great in their own ways.

Now quit your bitchin' and fight!

OMG the Evo was still born because they killed group B, that was the badass version

There was an RS200 on Ebay stateside recently.... It was freakin amazing, and super low mileage!

They made 24 of them. Not stillborn.

In the interest of not coming off as a complete dick, I'll suggest you look in the the Lada Samara Group B car. Since that never made it past testing, it was pretty much stillborn.

The RS200 Evo is no more still born than the Porsche 959. No it never raced in Group B, but it was very much a project that was seen to realization.

RS 200...no question. Street/Evo....I would take one over any other Group B car. Period.

Okay... RS200, any day, everyday, all the time. It's the only car I'd sell my XR for. Seriously. Besides, I've already got a parts stash for the RS200 started... doors, taillights, etc.
