Summary:

Motoring perfection

Faults:

Tracking needed doing.

Tyres needed replacing.

Wheels need refurbishing.

General Comments:

Stunning in every way. A serious performance car that will demolish almost anything on the road today. Blisteringly fast.

Fuel economy poor, but brings a smile every time you drive it. Astonishing, addictive and a total babe magnet.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summer of 2010, a friend of mine stops in front of my driveway (I'm out enjoying a day off) and he is test driving this beauty (2006) that is for sale. He is used to powerful cars so I trusted him and I'll skip the details. Too many settings to remember but one: no electricity but for the motor and trans... We went for a 10 mile round trip (I live on country road) and in no time I was back in my driveway again ;gasping. As you mentioned, I think it can demolish just about anything on the road (few, very few exceptions!) Shifting was through paddles on the steering, clunk after clunk I was glued to the seat... blazing fast!!! Still the ride of my life!!!
