This might sound like an odd idea, but stay with it for a second: How about if North America joined the European Union? It could solve a lot of healthcare problems and the Canadians can already speak French. But mainly, we might then get the Renault Clio Gordini 200 super-hot hatch over here. And that could only be a good thing. First off, it's built at the famed Alpine plant in Dieppe; it has a highly rated sport suspension, but offers the option of a stiffer and lower setup; the 2.0-liter engine makes 200 hp, and the stoppers are made by Brembo. Throw in some nice accoutrements like special seats and bits of trim, and this becomes a car that makes an American's driving life that little bit poorer.
