MK1 172’s- Rare

  Ziel Nurburgring

Driving home and seeing 2 or 3 Mk2s today, i suddenly thought i hardly ever see a mk1. Anyone else noticed this?

i sell less valvers & williams, mk2 clios seem really popular (172s etc)
Good point, hardly see any Mk1s full stop TBH.
I was meaning Mk1 Clios, not just Mk1 172s... ;)

yep phase 1s 172s rare,phase2 172,182s seem to be everywhere,personally i think theyve over done it now but nether the less stonking motors...

Another guy at work has a mk1 so I see 2 of them everyday :)

Although mines a black one so much rarer than his silver one :p

The mk1 aint exactly rare, lots were sold, but there were a hell of a lot more mk2s made, so theyre more common, however in the grand scheme of all things motoring, compared to say a the full Mondeo range, the numbers are tiny.

172s are well rare in westminster, Most of the cars round here are bentley continental GTs now, 100s of em.

Good good. Just making sure your not being lazy. Think we should all meet for a mk1 172 meet sometime as not really any other mk1s in my area of cliosport meets

Nice pics, but back to my point. I dont think ive seen a MK1 on the road in months (bubbles at the ring doesnt count)

Gotta agree, especially in South Africa, we only received 50 mk1 172s and as far as I know about 20% of them have been written off to date
