They're quality!.. If nothing else, take one for a test drive & decide for yourself.

They can be a little tricky getting in & out if you're quite tall, and the gearboxes are slow at changing.

I love em.. they handle like go-karts!

Top cars, very easily modded, hhas a nanny chip which is easily removed, lots of work can be done to the engine

check out

i used to sell them and they were funky little cars used the adrenalin effect on test drives as so many people were amazed by how they handled.

Regardind the handling its not that great. Im sure EVO said that the handling is more grip, rather than handling if that makes any sense.

Brabus do a lovely twin engined version.

Price is a bit steep though - in fact, sodding vertical, approx 130 grand if I remember rightly

i work on these things, they're nothing but problems. Water leaks is the biggest problems. The car needs to be fully re-sealed to stop the majority of leaks.
