    • pureworx

      the $ price is irrelavant.. that was a straight conversion from GBP TO USD. Considering the price probably includes the 20% VAT… its probably more like $23-24k

      • Jan Cervenka

        yeah i includes vat.

      • Aj

  • devonair

    Wait a minute… please tell me those engine numbers are a typo: 120hp with 210 lb-ft of torque? I’m guessing (hoping) that the HP number should have been 210hp?

    • Obsequious Lickspittle

      It’s actually 154 lb-ft .
