Did you buy this car new or used?


How much did you pay? (including all on-road costs)


What were your needs when you bought this car? Has it fulfilled those needs?

Dynamic car to replace a Nissan GTR. Excellent performance on the road and track. Comfortable ,reliable, fewer hidden cost compared with GTR.

What were your initial thoughts about the car? Tell us why it appealed to you.

Loved the looks, very good European reviews. Very comfortable, very quick in appropriate places, brilliant handling. Good controls, no touch screen so no need to take eyes off the road to change temp etc.

What have you discovered since owning the car?

The motor is a dream. No turbo lag and it seems to go hard from 2000rpm. Gearbox very smooth in auto, and very rapid changes in manual. Original tyres rubbish, worn out inside 10000 km.

What do you like/dislike about the car?

Squeaky brakes. Not much else, it’s almost the perfect performance car. It could handle more power, pity we don’t get 4wd version here, that would quell the loose rear end in the wet

Any other comments on the car?

 Beautiful looks especially in Competitione red with silver wheels.

Why would/wouldn't you buy it again?

I would buy again, there’s nothing else on market here that looks as good, goes as well,handles as well, and wears very well.
