I like the the MPG and the CO2 that Piston heads state and there are more photos of this nice looking car here.

I'm pretty sure that car was on ebay earlier this year.
There was certainly a car in the same colour with the same interior colour.
It was one of the ones I got outbid on when I was looking for my se6.

Looking through my older note on cars I was interested in/wanted to bid on/make offers on I know why I didn't want to bid anymore on that car.

I don't remember it looking as good as it does now so they have spent some time & money on it to get it looking like that.

I'm still not a fan of the interior colour scheme at all though.
