Great fun, but needs a more reliable engine
Shattered Piston at 147,500 miles heavily scoring the cylinder block few bob to spend here.
Woodruff key on crankshaft gear shears, bending 10 valves, breaking valve guides at 149,000 miles,
Woodruff key shears again 40 miles after the rebuild bending all 16 valves this time and whatever else damage I will find when I take the head off it.
Generally this car is very good. it has very appealing styling, performance to match almost anything on the road and handling is superb and with the 6 speed gearbox fuel consumption isn't too bad either, the interior I have in mine is black leather which is very comfortable.
My only Dissappointment really is that the engine seems a little soft especially after all the hours I put into repairing it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
