Description
My third Coupe, after I bent the first one and the second one succumbed to tin-worm. Engine has been transplanted from probably the highest mileage performance Coupe there was - currently doing 25,000 - 30,000 miles a year.

Likes: - the noise, the looks, the colour, the noise, the exclusivity, the noise, the handling, the comfort, the noise and the way it sounds!

Dislikes: - the noise, the front-end heaviness, the squealy brakes, the turbo lag.

In the previous car, this engine and chassis config was TWICE winner of the FWD class handling at Ten of the Best (VII and VIII) - over 1 second clear of second place and would have been placed about 8th in the RWD class!

Extremes - 8mpg on track and 43mpg when REALLY trying - what other 175mph cars can claim this?
