Nice ??

Now that does absolutely nothing for me.

I drove a 328 for a day, took it to the GT racing at Oulton Park. Hated it.

Looks like it's on fking stilts.
Only because we've just had several pages of looking at things with broken suspension.

Isle of Man plate…luckily not too long a commute to get it to a cliff and keep going.

Have to disagree - think it looks stunning ??
Stretched tyres on a Ferrari?!? They look bad enough on a fking Lupo...but on a supercar which is supposed to handle?!?

...and then there's the stance of the thing...yes it's all flashy, but there's zero sidewall compliance and zero suspension travel, so it probably rides worse than an old-school Audi.



That thing is ALL show and fk-all go.

PBB Design St Tropez.

The one and only time I've seen one was at Castle Combe Supercar Test Day around 1990ish.

That looks like it flexes more than a body builder in front of their judging panel!

It was coming towards on on the twisty bit of the Atlantic Highway in north Devon. It was cornering pretty well, quite quickly. I’m not sure if the roof is structural at all in an Espirit, but I could well be wrong.

Esprits have a GRP body on a separate steel backbone chassis, so cutting the roof off shouldn't affect handling.
