Summary:

Probably one of the rarest cars in the world

Faults:

Not much really, apart from the odd piece of trim coming loose.

The power steering pump became noisy and this was replaced under warranty back in 2000!

General Comments:

This car is a very rare beast. 0-60mph in 3.3 seconds, and a top speed of around 200mph means that I have yet to see a car outrun me!

The torque of the engine is superb; stick it in 6th(gear) at 20mph and it still pulls like a scalded cat!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

It's just a Corvette with different bumpers.
