Big engine with lots of torque and hp, but can't help feeling like they could have gotten more out of it. Good speed in a straight line, but try driving it on a windy road and you will cook the brakes quickly as it has massive understeer and handles awful. The chassis is a modified DEW98, used by the Jaguar S-Type which has been converted to a D2C, but it has taken a step back instead of being improved upon in the name of cost and you get MacPherson strut front suspension and solid axle rear suspension with a Panhard rod. Explains why it handles so badly. For the price, there are a lot of far better cars out there, such as the Subaru Impreza STI, Nissan 370Z, Mitsu Evo VIII.
