Saw one the other day parked up, didnt like the colour to be honest. I know a car dealer who has sold a couple and he didnt enjoy driving it at all, I value his opinion as he has sold everything from Mini Cooper Ss to Ferrari 288 GTOs. He said the best hot hatch he ahd ever driven was a Pulsar GTI-R. Got to love the seats though!
There are 2 in close proximity where I live. Not bad looking, exterior styling is quite discrete, not loud with huge wings and spoilers everywhere and fat exhausts, but has a "menacing" stance unlike anyother Fords, though not too keen on the interior.
The local garage near where I live has one. Looks nice and chunky - bit understated. I love the alloys tho. Someone that has driven it may have had a diff incident because the last time I saw it there was a lot of crash damage down one side LOL
I think there was an engine problem that delayed it but cant remember the full story. I dont think torque steering is the prob its the animal of a diff. Opinions differ as too whether this is dangerous or not - I wouldnt mind a shot of one to make up my own mind as I have have owned "torque steering disaters" before myself and loved them. Hopefully the bad press will bu66er second hand prices!
Yeah i agree with what 172man has said there, it would be great on track but then why not have a more focused machine like a caterham which is alot better? Though to be fair the people behind the car wanted it to be fairly uncompromised and for some european countries im sure the diff would be ok.
I quite like the look of them and will probably one day be stupid enough to own one (due to my 1 car per year ratio), but the best description ive seen is on scoobynet where someone called it a Hedge Seeking Missile LOL
