Summary:

An affordable dream car

Faults:

Clutch master cylinder had to be replaced (manufacture recall).

Interior trims wear out very easily.

Door handle (aluminum coating) is beginning to bubble.

General Comments:

Nice long gears, quick, and nimble. Plenty of horsepower packed in the HR V6 motor, but lacks a bit of torque to make it real fun.

A true sports car, with two seats that hug you as you take turns aggressively.

I've made a few bolt on modifications and a single mass flywheel, and after a tune - I'm pushing 297.5 horses to the wheel, and it makes it a blast to drive.

Timeless design - simple modifications here and there, have really gotten people to turn heads and just stare.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
