Fun As Second/third Car — Too quick for such a small car, but handled great went round corners like on rails, Build quality good but sparse, Looks great, but hood a nightmare to erect, Parts expensive but thats lotus for you, Fun to drive in summer, not so much fun if raining

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

Pros: Looks performance Fun

Cons: Hood!!!

Review Title? — Realising a 12 year old dream, it corners like its on rails and pulls from any speed in any gear. Looks awesome in Nautilus Blue and I love it! In the words of Ferris Bueller - if you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up. It is so choice.

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

Pros: Looks, sped, handling

Cons: Getting in and out, the roof

The Toys — 2 seater go-cart brilliant acceleration, not so good top end, awsome cornering. built solid but leaks in water as window gaps are poor, rattles and creaks everywhere. looks superb for behind, not bad from sides but think looks a bit kit carish from front. interior very sparce (no goodies on board) fuel usage is great as only a 1.8 and only 800kg. not had any real problems with the car and have a guy who maintains it if needed as he maintains racing ones daily. prob the in the top 10 of cars for out right fun. would recomend to any one with no kids as only 2 seats and if you get it wrong in the wet the kids are gonna be orphans.

Pros: NEARLY EVERY THING

Cons: RAINS IN. NO GOODIES
