    Love it. I actually don't think it's as desirable as the G40R but I'd love to have a go in one.

    Saw the olive green one at Snetterton in August; lovely little car. Looks like a baby version of the current hypercars, with its 'bubble-shaped' cabin roof.

    I think (and hope!) it'll do well for them.

    Best thing to come out of Leeds since the M1 (Not the BMW one).
