The Simca 1100 is a car built from 1967 to 1982 by Simca. Perhaps the car with the strongest claim to be the first “Hot Hatch” was the Simca 1100 Ti which was launched in 1974.
The Simca 1100 Ti was fitted with a with a naturally aspirated 1294 cm3 engine producing 82 hp (60 kw) which was up over 40% from the 58hp of the standard models. The power increase dramatically improved the performance, with a 0-100 km/h time of 12 seconds and a top speed of 167 km/h (104 mph).
Based on the 1100 Special introduced in 1970, distinguishing features of this performance version were its six-headlamp and foglight arrangement, front disc brakes, front and rear spoilers, alloy wheels, matte black grille and single colour paint scheme (red).
