Rare And Fun — Very rare and stylish car, its a blast to drive. Inspite It's 2 ton weight, performance is still very respectful. Very smooth V12 engine with a great sound. The six speed manual transmission is smooth and clutch very predictable. Rear seats are virtually unusable as leg room is very tight even with front seats moved fwd. Some parts are rare and very expensive, headlight lens about $370, trip computer about $900, pentosin hydraulic fluid $25 quart. It's a gas guzzler with about 15 mpg city and 20 hwy. There are several good online resources for tech tips and parts. Prepare to spend time and money to maintain and operate. Overall still a very enjoyable car to own and drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great style, rare and unique. Comfortable to drive.

Cons: Extensive maintenance required. Complex systems, fuel and electrical are common issues with this car.  The power steering-brakes use a combined system to power. Suspension is also complex and in need of attention. Common issues: headlight adjusters break. Windshield arms wear and lock up. Fuel injection system fuel leaks are common at various hose connections. Trip computer displays lose pixals.
