Little update.

This car is extraordinarily good. It has so much road presence.....similar to the Atom, gets attention everywhere. It's also cool to be able to drive it with friends sat comfortably in the back enjoying the experience.

I'm really quite staggered as to just how fast it is. If you haven't seen one the granturismo is a very large car......and it's no lightweight.....but my god can it shift. The fact that it feels even remotely fast (after the Atom) is a testament to just how quick it is......and it's relentless acceleration.....it just goes and goes.

Downside...as expected....very thirsty, so bit like myself  ;D

Cheers Wattie

Sounds and looks great fun Wattie !

What's the equivalent UK price of a litre of decent octane unleaded in Cyprus?

Honest answer is I don't know  ???

I do know it cost me 100 euro to brim it from virtually empty.....and it didn't last too long :o

Uses 98 Ron.

Hopefully Stew, you can't cram £85 worth of petrol in your Jazz!

Cyprus price - "Euro1.26 a litre"

That's about 1.08 of your Great British Pounds !

Why is it that despite what hapens to the economy, a Euro is always worth 86 pence?

Ok-ish but the exposure's a bit on the low side ...

.. and the perspective would be improved if that big car was in the background ..

Agreed on both counts fellas....sun was on wrong side and couldn't get around the harbour the other way.

It's a bloody big car....but it does shrink around you when you're in it...and on the move.At slow speeds the front/rear sensors are a must....nightmare without em.
