Summary:

Pleasure for the senses

Faults:

First day I had it the distribution cord went off (I thought that would seriously affect valves and stuff, but didn't) so no big deal, a week later I replaced the radiator.

Now I have to check a minor oil leak.

General Comments:

This car is unique, there's nothing to complain about it. First time the car hit the road I felt tempted to push it quite a bit. The result was that I reached 225 km/h (by the car's instruments) and feeling steady as a rock, and a little bonus: an Alfa Romeo 145 Cuadrifoglio was getting smaller in my mirror.

The car is fully equipped, electric windows, mirrors, ADAC (computer), both front and rear disc brakes, etc, etc, etc.

Having a car like makes me wanna drive. Not like others.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
