Fast, fun, user friendly and just that bit more exclusive!


I have encountered no problems with my car.

General Comments:

This car is quick and very responsive.

The cabin in my model is full leather and beautifully made.

The soft top can be put down fast and easily.

To compare it to the MX5 or the MGF would be easy, the Barchetta would win no problem.

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

What is interesting is all reviews are positive, except for the 1996 models. First model year? Fixed the child diseases for the 1997 model year?
