    Awesome! — Fun to drive at racing tracks because of the high power and the light weight. Need frequent maintenance like oil changes (every 2000mi) and spark plug changes (every 3000mi). Four seater, but rear seats are small even for kids. City:14 mpg, Highway:17 mpg.

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

    Pros: Good handling

    Cons: Bad mileage

    Buy One As A Weekend Car If You Can Afford Such Too — its an all round monster of a car great accelleration lots of power smooth east car to drive with great handling also styling wise its still a very modern car with some sexy curves and stylish interior only drawbacks are the poor quality plastic trim pieces which make the car feel takky and it can be an expesnive car to run and maintaine

    Sex On Wheels... — Stunning looks and performance but has a bad rep for reliablillity. I owned two and had three rebuilds,though this was partly down to taking it to someone who claimed they were an exper but wasn't...then I found Pip at WGT who is a rotary wizard and had no more problems...apartfrom writing it off 6 months later. Very fast, espeacilly when tuned. Mine could do 0-60 in just under 4 secs and 172 mph top speed, at least that's what Tim and I hit before we ran out of road! The rotary engine is a crazy piece of engineering. sounds amazing and just keeps reving. Highly responsive in twin turbo guise...I want another one so badly but they cost alot to run. Still looks modern today inside and out but the interior materials were of the typical early 90's quality,plastic everywhere. Stil worth alook though as you get incredible looksa nd performance for the money and they are very rare cars...keep peolpe guessing. Some jackass even thought I was driving a Dodge Viper once...

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

    Pros: Performance, rarity and looks...

    Cons: Money, reliability...but not an issue providing you take it to a prper speacialist like WGT and look after it...
