Expensive rubbish, and I mean rubbish
Inlet manifold gasket leak.
Exhaust manifold gasket leak.
Stepper motor faulty.
Door hinges sagging.
Bonnet hinges worn.
Bonnet catch broken.
Bonnet release cable snapped.
Throttle cable stretched.
Worn differential bushes.
Seatbelts wouldn't pay out.
I have to admit I bought this car on a whim. The thought of having a big V8 in a light convertible blinded me to the fact that I bought a pig in a poke.
The engine coughed and spluttered, and never ran well, the diff bushes were slacker than a porn star's, it drank fuel like no other car I've heard of, and its claimed 0-60 in under 5 seconds is an absolute lie.
It sounded good for a 10 minute blast, but after this, the noise was stupidly loud, the cabin was hot and stuffy, but at the same time plagued by condensation, and the steering was outrageously heavy. And I'm comparing that to a Series III Landrover..
The central locking played up all the time, the battery flattened itself regularly, the wipers were useless (again, I'm comparing that to a Series III Landrover), the headlights were a joke (once again, I'm comparing that to a Series III Landrover).
All in all, I wish I'd never bought it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
