Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I like driving and am prepared to put up with certain discomforts in pursuit of that.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They love it! The way it looks, the way it sounds and the rarity.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, absolutely. It drives exactly as I'd want it too and, mechanically, it has been unimpeachable.

What are you likely to buy next?
Difficult to say. For now, the Spyder is a keeper and I can't think what I could possibly replace it with without spending six figures.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Sensational. Best handling car I've driven. Engine makes a beautiful noise and pulls like a train. No complaints whatsoever.

What's it like to park?
Tricky! Rear visibility is extremely limited, so parking sensors are a must.
