Generally, I find her to be the most, ‘unique’ car my father ever owned.
She is certainly not the fastest as he had a kitted out Toyota GT4. However, from the lights agents such cars as Honda's C-R-X and Ford's Puma it can leave them far behind with no engine tuning what so ever. (Agents my mates fully tuned Puma.)
I have timed how fast she was able to get from 0-70 miles per hour and what the official Mazda book says is wrong as I saw her do it 7.85 seconds.
In addition, she is the best value for money my farther brought her for two thousand and five hundred pounds and she is worth around just over four grand in this country.
The handling by sitting in the passenger seat is like, not knowing that your doing seventy until your doing ninety miles per hour and going round corners at fifty miles per hour, you can't feel a thing its just a slight tire screech that gives the game away, as she holds the ground. She makes you fell completely safe as if you are inside K. I. T. T. from Television’s Knight Rider. (Hope I can say that.)
I am counting the days until I can have her legally next year.
Also encase your wondering why I keep calling it 'she', it is because it is almost human in its looks, how it looks like it watching you and its damn cute. Almost as much as my girlfriend, but do not get it wrong as she is prepared to show you that she is not on the play station.
