i raced a pug 205 gti, it was well modded so not sure if 1.6 or 1.9 cos badge was colour coded. also i was three up and he was on his own. from the lights he toasted me, but when we later slowed for traffic and accelerated again i was reeling him in quite convincingly!
i was gonna get a 1.9 gti a little while back but i couldnt find a nice example for a sensible price so i never drove one. theyre meant to be fairly similar to the williams but not so forgiving on the handling. anyways im happy with my williams its much faster than my old valver
Ive not driven mine much, but in my honest opinion, the Willy is a better car. I cant really put my finger on it, but the Willy just feels better balanced through hard cornering. And the engine feels stronger. Just my opinion though.
The 1.9s are best in standard trim. Any mods like the 2 litre conversion puts too much weight in front of the front wheels and craps up the handling - understeer city. My friend has a Miami Blue 205 gti 1.9 and its gorgeous - absolutely standard apart from balanced crack, polished head and balanced clutch. It is pretty darn quick id say!
i had a atandard 205 1.9gti (well air filter and stainless steel exhaust), and there is no way its as quick as my valver. a williams would eat it up. I no the 205 ran nice cos my mate had a mint 1.9 and the speeds were indentical.
