A friend (ex-neighbour) of mine had one in black a few years ago, awesome vehicle, he sold his on when his mate, who had one as well, managed to kill himself after losing control of it and ending up in the scenery. I believe he was a qualified pursuit driver. Handling was a little 'dodgey', and I'll always remember Car magazine's comments about them in their GBU section as 'Elvis shot his'

Doesn't detract from its beauty though.
