This car is nimble. I it takes corners very agile and provides enough power to be exhilarating but not so much to take away from the drivability when maneuvering. The interior rivals that of most cars from 2020 and the exterior styling is pleasant and aggressive. This car is truly a unique find with front mid engine, rotary and suicide doors for rear passenger access. Unfortunately, this car doesn't have the most reliable engine. You must practice a well balanced regimen of care to increase the longevity of this car. When you do, you will love the exhilarating 9k RPM revs.

A proper rear drive short throw 6-speed sports car; as long as one knows how to care for the rotary engine. 1st and foremost, before purchase one must obtain a compression test on the engine, then change out the plugs and wires. These items were known to damage the engine but were not recalled. Otherwise, I use mine daily during the summer with my wife and 2 of my 3 kids. I can also take two of them to hockey during the summer and one is a goalie. Just a fun car to drive.
