On my recent hols to Lanzarote I saw this. Looked really good in the flesh. Reviews for it are poor though. Never seen one in the UK.

Wolfstone... Thats was me. Didn't sell up. took the car with me to Germany for 5 years and re-imported it in 2015 - still have the it (the only one registered in UK) The red one has been sold and exported to France. Mine was last spotted and seen on this video at 6:48 and mistaken as a Speedster as usual.

It was known in the states as a Saturn Sky. sister vehicle to the Pontiac Solstice. Also re badged as a Daewoo G2X

I've seen a few on the continentt.  I remember being followed by a yellow one that tried it on briefly (driver thinking it had more power I assume), up the St Bernard Pass, but  some accelleration out of a couple of sharp corners and the driver gave up.

It has lots of power but is very heavy compared to the VX. But even as a tank it surprises a few as it can hold its own fairly well.

 

 

 

Heres a bit of fun at Spa :)
