The car idled way too high.

General Comments:

This car is fast and has a lot of torque and it handles well.

Other than that I dont recommend it for anyone.

Everything that can go wrong has happened with it.

When I bought it the car had blown head gaskets so I rebuilt the engine. After driving for 600 miles the oil pump failed so I had to put yet a new engine in it. I drove about 1000 miles with the new engine and now it´s not working again.

Also, the engine is terrible to work on because of the supercharger and all of the electronics.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

If you rebuilt the engine, why would the oil pump have failed? A new to you engine is not a new engine.
