It is a pure sport car. It provides the same track performance of a Ferrari or Lamborghini of 6/7 years ago. Hard, noisy but, warning, it creates addiction. Once you drive it for more then one hundred miles or you use it in a track you become totally addicted. Yes, you can use it for driving downtown on Saturday or to the grocery store, but be aware it will be painful parking it and leaving it alone. It cannot be used as a primary car unless you have an emergency.
