    Given that it weighed not much more than a can of beans the power-to-weight ratio was insane. I used to get up at 5am on Summer mornings just enjoy a rapid(!) drive on empty roads.

    Aaahh - the joys of youth

    I'm having plenty of giggles in my car, but it has everything to do with all the equipment and hardly anything with the 75 prancing horses underneath the bonnet

    180 was insane power for that time! I bet it was a hoot!

    Well, I took the leap and put it in ESC Sport on a closed course. Either I’m too old, or this car is just mystifying. I have a headache from all the hijinks.
