Gorgeous car but unreliable and expensive to maintain
This has to be one of the most beautiful cars ever made. The quality was superb. It is mostly handmade and it showed. The interior roof liner was hand quilted leather. The dashboard was also hand formed leather and had a clock made by Jaeger le Coultre. Driving it was exciting, nerve wracking, and mostly uncomfortable. It had a very pronounced blind spot when backing up and didn't come with a back up system. It absolutely needed one. I found the leg room great but the head room was horrible. I am 5'10 and my head brushed the roof. It was difficult to find the horn as it wasn't in the middle of the steering wheel but on either side. The paddle shifting was fun and the car was terrifyingly fast. It easily spun out when the ground was wet. The braking was tremendously effective and the acceleration was scary. The car would actually roar when it accelerated. My favorite part was the sound the engine made when it fired. It had the same sound as a Ferrari. I eventually sold it for two reasons. The first was that on a hot day the car would overheat very easily. I had to drive a steep hill going to my home and in the summer the car would overheat and I would have to drive with the heat on and the windows down so it wouldn't actually overheat. The second reason was the maintenance costs. We needed three new clutches in two years because of how hard it was to get a hang of driving it. Each clutch was roughly $6,500. An oil change was around $600 because the engine had to be lifted to do it.
