A real powerhouse that is a pleasure to drive


The rear seat has recently come adrift and the back rest is unstable.

General Comments:

This car is very quick. Although it was cheap to build and is no oil painting, it is certainly a car to be respected.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
