Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Brilliant. Feels like a brand new car to drive, and the rear wheel drive spurs you on to drive it harder. Engine is smooth, and deceptively fast.

What's it like to park?
Easy, as the staight lines of the car help you.

Even though big engine, its still relatively cheap to run.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The mtec bodykit makes it look very sexy.
