Fully and completely agree with you Dante!

It's a brilliant sports car. Can give plenty of other 'powerful' cars, a run for their money! I mean, 0-100 in 4.5 seconds! The figures are enough! And it's quite light too! Very chuckable and the handling is sublime! There is little fault you can find with this marvelous piece of automotive engineering!

I personally feel that the alloy wheel doesn't suit this car and the design would have been better for this car.I looks like some tuner done Exige S.

Agree with you here. But how does that matter? It can be changed always.

Waiting to read Ajmat's view and comment.
