Big and bold, like the fuel bills...


Blown motor due to a leaking radiator at 75mph on the motorway on the hottest day of the year.

Apart from that, the exhaust is just being replaced and the tranny leaks.

General Comments:

Goes like a rocket propelled ocean liner (especially now I added a performance cam).

Room for 8 in the cabin, and 4 more in the trunk!

Scares owners of mere mortal cars as it looms up on them.

Impossible to park anywhere in England.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
