best of both worlds?

In our Clash of the Classics verdict we say that, surely a VW Golf with the heart and soul of an Alfasud sounds the perfect family classic. Well, Alfa had a similar idea but instead went to Nissan and the result was the Arna (above). The Italian had such high hopes for this amalgamated car that it even built a new factory near Naples to accommodate the Arna and hopefully other similar tie ups. Wrapped in the latest Cherry bodyshell, Arna should have provided the best of both worlds but instead it was awful and a massive flop, appealing to nobody in particular. There again, can you think of two more unlikely, less suited bedfellows? The range – which included a Ti-powered version – was killed off by 1987. So it’s rubbish car then? Yes without question – but as a quirky classic with a special history, that’s a different matter…
