Beautiful and Elegant. Like a woman's high heel shoe and, I imagine, just as comfortable
It constantly overheated in traffic until I upgraded the cooling system.
Had to replace the clutch and brake master cylinders.
Had to buy new tires, which were outlandishly expensive. For both 7" fronts and 10" rear.
Quite fast in a straight line and around corners.
Quite loud though, and quite hot after driving for a while.
I'm 5'11", and if I were even an inch taller, I would barely be able to fit. It's not that comfortable as is, so I couldn't imagine fitting someone who's over 6 feet tall in there.
It's also very low - I have a hard time getting out of it gracefully.
The pedals are offset to the right to make room for the wheel well, which is lousy.
The shift gate was difficult at first, but I got used to it and the dog leg first gear arrangement was a bother, but after a while it didn't bother me either.
Guzzles gas on the freeway - I get around 17mpg.
Hard ride, have to be careful going over speed bumps and ruts in the road.
All in all, it's a super car from the seventies, it has its quirks and it's insanely beautiful and insanely fast, but it's far from a daily driver, and far from something that's comfortable enough to be so.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
