Summary:

Very cheap horse power

Faults:

The leather seats are badly sun/heat damaged.

The electronic speedo sometimes faults and displays the speed incorrectly.

General Comments:

The Leopard is one fast car once the turbo winds up, a lot of fun, faster than most cars on the road.

Looks a lot like a 1990 Maxima, but in rear wheel drive, and most important has a turbo.

The engine is the quad-cam V6 called a vg30t, the same engine as is in the Nissan 300ZX. In the Leopard this engine produces approximately 185 kilowatts.

This car has to be one of the ultimate sleeper cars.

It comes with a lot of features including an electric drivers seat, cruise control, electric windows, power steering, central locking, electric mirrors, climate control.

This car was imported into America as the Infiniti M30.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
