Re: New Duetto
There's a ready market for an MX5 priced roadster. I don't think it would take sales from the Spider when there's a £10k differential. After all, BMW 3's and 5's get very close/overlap on prices at each, ditto Freelanders and Disco's etc etc.
I agree that the picture looks a bit false and I'm not totally convinced about the front end treatment around the lower grilles and headlights but I do like the concept.
Priced like an MX5, with decent handling, modest performance and heaps of Italian flair it would fly out of the showrooms.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
