Beauty and the beast
Drivers side door leaked during heavy downpour.
Drivers side door could only be opened from the inside sometimes.
Clutch master pump had a leak (6000km)
Accelerator pedal cable snapped. (5000km)
Engine stall occasionally when dropping gear.
Small rubber/plastic details and finishes around windscreen and doors were a little unsightly.
This car looks and sounds seriously sexy. You will never feel this special seated in another sports car again! Very often I get the best spot in a valet. The only downside is I get trailed very often usually closer than I would like. The car seems to get a lot of attention from chics too.
This car is quick if not seriously scary. The V8 music and muscle is a dream that reassures you (or anyone else) of the true beast that lies beneath the beauty. No sports car has ever had the nerve to fly past me. Always slowing down first as a sign of respect. Handling demands attention and skill.
It is obvious that this car was intended for a select type of drivers who know what they really want. As for me, I would never buy another make. I have to admit I have my eyes on the 5 litre AJP.
The drawbacks are really not worth worrying about when you have all of the above.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
