Very good, simple car with all the performance and noise you will need. More manufacturers need to produce and sell these types cars in the uk.

Unbelievably fun car to drive.. It's the kind of car that makes you realise that cars are not just for the daily commute they are also supposed to bring freedom and most of all pleasure.... and the bathurst s delivers that in bucketloads.. It may not be a premium brand like my last car but who cares? Just 2 minutes in this car will have you grinning for quite a long while and the memories will last forever : )
