Not just a head-turner, but a performance sports car that handles with quick & smooth response. The vtech can become addictive at first and the owner needs to choose the time and place to downshift, step on the gas, and be thrown back in your seat! If you want to maneuver through traffic, you don't need to crank it up or slowly guide it to where you want to go, just do it! Reliable, well built. Have had no mechanical issues. Besides an extra set of tires, nothing but regular maintenance. Got great lines, power, and just downright fun to drive. Easy to get to know, and once you're connected, it becomes your extension to the highway. You can move or cruise at will.
Handles like a charm. So balanced (engine mounted toward center) and holds the road so well with wide rear tires, I enjoy rounding the clover leafs as if they were straight! A joy to drive on two- lane windy roads where you can hug the shoulder or pass at will. Convertible top works easily.
Cover for radio/CD needs to be contoured so that when it's open you don't hit it with your knee. Need more highways where 125 mph is not illegal. Storage space in the interior is minimal, but recessed square in trunk can hold a surprising amount. Put in outside temp reading & iPod plug in.
