Summary:

Great thrills for little money

Faults:

The car was not very well cared by the previous owner, so it had lots of little things to do.

The worst was when I bought the car, in Germany, just before the journey back to Portugal, the engine compartment lock jammed and I couldn't check the water or the oil during the entire journey (about 3000 Km).

All went right though.

Great car, very reliable.

General Comments:

Very regarding to hear the turbo's hiss and get a kick in your back!

The car has stunning looks, is very comfortable and extremely quick.

It reminds me a Lotus Europa that I owned many years ago, but this is much more refined.

I think I will never sell it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
