Summary:

The most underrated sportscar

Faults:

Only one main disaster: the engine broke down. Failure of the 4th cylinder. Had to replace the engine. But now it has a brand new engine and no worries.

General Comments:

A supercar! I could not think of a better (small) fun car. Excellent performance and road behaviour. Great at high and low speed.

Very usable!
