This is a seriously fast car - 3.5 litres V6 and 276 bhp. O-60 in under 6 seconds. All for 25 grand.
You can see the specification details in the manufacturers brochure - what I want to pass on is the driving experience. This is a low car - but once you're in (getting out is harder!) the electronically controlled leather seats are superb and the driving position excellent - although no rake in the steering wheel.
Once in situ you'll need to depress the clutch to start and then listen for the lovely rumble of the V6. Amazingly this is a very easy car to drive. Okay the clutch and steering may feel a little heavy (no surprise given the size of the tyres!) but this car will happily pull away in second and cruise around town... but out on the open road it's a beast!
Superb handling/roadholding and in the wet the rear wheel drive is tempered by all sorts of electronic stabilizers (of course you can switch these off!).That said pushing the car hard around corners in the wet can be a little scary - in the dry it's grip is awesome. The suspension is hard, but again not uncomfortably so.
The torque is incredible and 3rd gear sees you happily past the legal limit. At the same time it will idle along at 60 in sixth and return 35 mpg on a quiet run.
All in all this is an awesome car for the money.
