Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Its exceptional, with near 180bhp and a super and turbo charger connected to the go pedal this thing is a dream to drive. The gear box is very very smooth and knows exactly what you want it it do, be nice and smooth and it gives good mpg, floor it and you'll destroy the average car and give the beemers and audi's a run for their money.

What's it like to park?
Very easy, just don't bury the throttle in reverse or in D, be gentle.
