  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Amazing driving experience. Braking is superb whilst the feedback from the suspension through the steering wheel is great. I just cant find the limit of grip in the car. On a more rural road however you will struggle, especially if you have the optional LSD fitted as it likes to pull you into all the ruts on the road.

    What's it like to park?

    Impossible, dont bother or just take up two spaces. Its easier. zero visibility + rack limiters = problem.

  • Living with it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    ABS block set me back nearly £2k and i will shortly be shelling out another couple of thousand to have the rear arches redone.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Nothing, thats part of the appeal. You dont buy it for its practicality. a tarmac spec suspension plus bucket seats does not make for a comfy ride.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    The exhaust (pops and bangs on overrun, awesome noise) or the Ford LSD.
