They did say 300 a year, but is that the maximum or an optimistic number? A lightweight review but at least it was positive. The new Italian owners were given all of the credit for the new car, either that was the worlds fastest development, the new owners were involved for a lot longer than we think or, more likely, journalistic embellishment.

Watched the Fifth Gear review on tinterweb (it’s on Quest catch up) this morning having my coffee

Thought it was a basic but very positive review
A slight pity about the new owners getting the credit

Certainly better than Plato’s review of the Plus8 a few years ago which was pretty damning

Apologies if you're a fan but I'm afraid I just don't gel with Plato, never had, never will

No I’m no fan, especially after seeing his review of the Plus 8

Never let facts get in the way of plastic content. I am not certain that I have the right perspective to judge this however I am going to look at the positive side of it.

Great coverage to promote the company in people's minds. "A very bright future". I am going to skip the next bit given the fact that most of the work has been done under the existing team.

Overall it did feel like a positive result. Lots of nice comments.

If someone is out there looking at spending a good chunk of Her Majesty's finest beer vouchers it might just put the car on the list of "well its different so I might take a peek on the interweb" during the modern homework phase? This can only be good. So many people in the generation a little younger are looking for that alternative to the typical status symbol so readily available from the big vendors.

Sad that several facts were not all that well researched as I had a slightly higher expectation of them.

The thing I liked most - the blue tone it looked absolutely lovely on camera. Anyone watching it will see that shape and the comments and see something which makes a clear statement. When the Juke came out I laughed and said it was ugly but apparently enough people like looking different to make it a success. Successful enough to make Honda Toyota and others copy it's slightly odd style.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

And an ugly one at that, however it has attracted a certain following smile
