It looks like a bit like a mid-90s kit car with a mid-mounted K-series. However, as Gaz says, you have to start somewhere. I imagine it's very cool if you're Mexican.

Uncool. Shant is finally getting the hang of this (well done young man! )

You might have to start somewhere, but let's not be condescending and pretend "gash", as SIF so eloquently put it, is good.

We all saw it on TG and it's a plucky effort. Design-wise it draws on a number of fairly obvious cues (i.e. not all that original), build doesn't really come into it on here but we know it has work to do, performance is OK too but that has sod all to do with cool ratings and it doesn't send you into spasms of cardiac arrest anyway. Sportscars have to be exceptionally special to be cool, it is a law that sits even higher than kb's BGD rule and this isn't special or old enough to carry that off.



And you'd be barking mad to spend that kind of money on something inferior to a Lotus which makes it even more uncool.


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Another one of those cars, that for all its dynamic abilities, is about as cool as a day out at the Birmingham NEC bike show.
