Summary:

Super car power for pennies

Faults:

Seals went at 96,000 miles and engine blew.

Turbos have to be replace about every three years with rebuilt turbos. Should be better with Enfini replacements.

General Comments:

The car is seriously fast.

The handling is out of this world, and even greater with the tire upgrade I have done.

The best priced super car out there. Same interest from spectators as those cars price 3 to 5 times as much.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
