"This is an absolutely amazing vehicle - no other way to describe. It is one of the last analog vehicles in this series, and although the water-cooled engine may detract from historic bravado of the air-cooled classics; the legendary Mezger engine will more than make up for this, with its reliability and power. The 6-speed single mass flywheel manual transmission is a purists delight. Please note it was voted by a panel of enthusiasts at EVO as the vehicle of their first 200 issues a few years back. It is the combination of value and performance that really speaks volumes. This s a vehicle that personifies the true modern sports car! And this balance works on the track, on the highway and on the back roads - perhaps no in traffic..."
