Have from factory a type of lsd differential, and yes it has very good handling for a fwd car.
It is around 220 bhp with 5-speed manual transmission. The later's model have a 6-speed gearbox.
0-60 mph around 6.7-7.1 sec.

It is a good car and it can be tuned easily. The only worry is that the italic cars have problems with reability particurarly in the electrics.
Max speed is i think 245 km/h.

yeah Lee, I've spoken briefly with Ben sometime ago about his Coupe. Sounds like a pukka car!

I heard that to change the belts it's an engine out job. This could be complete cobblers, but well worth checking out.

After the joys of Vaux ownership, you would have thought that people would rather go for something more reliable, not LESS!

Anyone who's ever owned an italian car knows what I'm talking aboutlmao lmao :beer:

Quick, but an ugly pile of unreliable shite
i'd be careful with what you classify as unreliable. Many would say the same for your car Tim, so don't knock it until you've tried it.;)
