Summary

Parkers Rating:

2.5 out of 5

The GT is a limited edition version of the C2 that's designed to be a back-to-basics fun to drive model. It's powered by a 1.6-litre engine - this only delivers 110bhp, giving the GT a 0-62mph time of 9.5 seconds - but it's still an enjoyable unit to exploit. Unfortunately the slack manual gearbox takes the edge off the sporty feel, but it's at least an alternative to the semi-automatic gearbox that features in the VTR.

The steering also lacks feel, but that doesn't prevent the C2 GT from handling well with plenty of grip and minimal body roll.

What owners say...

 The boot is a good size and surprising how much you can fit into it, despite people saying it's small. Storage is excellent, plenty of cubby holes and a dashboard lid compartment that comes in handy...

 For me the most practical thing is the front seat space, being 6ft3 I find it hard to fit in comfortably with most cars, but in the C2 I have loads of headroom and seats are wide enough for me to fit...
