what a thorough and well-written review. of course, it's not from an american writeup! :p

the incar video was really sharp. from what i could tell, he's not even close to using the full braking capability of the car, at least in the dry. tough to say exactly, but i didnt get the sense he was close to threshold braking a 1,958 lb car.

still, fun to watch.

thanks for posting.

Yeah,

He left last year and joined Chris Harris (ex Autocar) to found Drivers Republic.

I was just checking out the orange 240 at Criswell in Gaithersburg, MD a few hours ago and it was breathtaking. The carbon fiber accents are just amazing. The funny stripes are an acquired taste for some, but they somehow look just right on the orange body.

And the seats are just amazing.

What a great article! I wonder if the US will ever get that kind of quality writing, photography and video online?

The car is amazing too... :)

Glad you liked it - you are right it is an acquired taste I am still getting used to my CO Sport 260's graphics still 4 months later. Pictures don't quite do it justice.

I am impressed with the level of quality the 260 has. The way these cars were made and painted was not easy. For instance the exposed carbon fiber on the front access panels really required some skill.

The handmade seats and the carbon fiber (which mostly goes unnoticed) are a real crafted piece of art.

I just saw a phantom black 260 and it is way :bow: but

:panic: for those needing to lose weight like myself:

The sweet looking carbon seats felt about 10% narrower than an Elise or Exige seat at the bottom where they grip the hips like a





If in doubt, I would be sure to check this out before ordering, although selling them would be cinch as they are works of art.
