Overview

"American muscle, mondeo money"

Exterior and Interior

Loud and American.... bodywork is plastic but the shape is undating. Mine was silver with red leather interior. A little loud for some (interior and engine) but why buy a car like this to blend in... it won't happen. Build quality not amazing but reliable engine. Had a Bose system so music was incredible, but very plastic interior. Had HUD so this was a nice touch.

Performance and Economy

Great in a straight line, mine had the race pack so was a little better around corners but could be a little wayward at times. Forget economy. The 4 exhausts and the overrun pop was amazing. A little off the mark calling it a supercar but looks great.

Like to Drive

More a weekend car, 2 seater and very shallow boot area. Not ideal as it was open to the main area of the car so any items could easily end up in the passenger or driver lap if you braked hard. Visibility not great, typically made for American straight roads. <

Faults and Repairs

Bullet proof engine, no fault or repairs needed. Specialist servicing but again not too expensive bearing in mind it was a 5.7 V8.
