Summary:

The car you wanted since you were 10 is worth the wait

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Exceptional handling, especially for a convertible.

Utter confidence on the road with oodles of power to spare.

Light and direct steering and absolute perfection of a gearbox.

The fabric top makes the interior surprisingly quiet when it's up, but you would never want to do that.

Make sure you have the wind deflector - it helps considerably to cut down the wind >75mph.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
