      Says a bloke with a blurred picture…..
      No, really… are you serious?
      I would have thought the main downside would be the electronics/electrics..
      How come the Italians just can NOT get that right?

        Yeah I genuinely think that it’s a messy nugget. It just seems to be a mess of ideas chucked together, kinda like they got an MX5 to mount a SRT-10 Viper and the baby car fell through the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

          🙂 Quite funny really.
          I do like it though.. It is after all based upon an MX5. A sweet looking car if ever.
          I bet it will sell like hot cakes. Only trust the electrics are better this century.
