I looked long and hard for this car.

find a 5 speed in the HPT. It was well
worth the wait. Handling is
phenomenal. A joy to drive on a
winding country road. The pick up is
great. First gear to about 15 mph.
Shift into second, hit the gas and the
turbo kicks in to push you back in your

automatic convertibile top works
flawlessly with no levers to hook or
unhook, just push one button. The body
