Summary:

Fantastic car. Everything you read about Ferrari is true

Faults:

Coolant leak from expansion tank cap.

Broken fuel injection relay.

Faulty heater valve.

Broken sidelight lens.

Poor reception on stereo.

Hood gas struts failed.

General Comments:

The car is superb in every way.

Handling is excellent, as you'd expect, and the steering wheel is alive in your hands.

The suspension can be adjusted to give a smooth ride over bad roads, but still performs like a Ferrari when you go faster.

The sound of the V8 engine behind your head at 8,000rpm is intoxicating.

The car will take 4 people, but there's not much legroom in the back.

Faults have been minor, mainly detail items; after all, it is twenty years old.

Servicing costs are £500 for the annual service and the cam belt service (required every 3 years) costs £1500.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
