Have never seen one before myself but just looking at the picture I can say it wouldn't be for me! Even just reading the spec would be enough! 0.6litre? You'd walk faster than that! Definitely wouldn't be doing any overtaking! Although it's probably a good city car? I'd imagine small money for tax too!

watched a review on top gear & they love it! (was surprised, is ment to be a nippie wee car similar to a 1 litre yaris).

I've just sold my copen and i cried for days over it! I had the newer model which is a 1.3 with no turbo. Personally, I found this nicer to drive than the 0.6 as i don't like driving turbos. As long as you don't need a practical car it's brilliant. I loved mine and was gutted to sell it but just had to get something more practical. You'll be shocked how much attention you get in it, particularly with the roof down. People always ask what it is and i can't count the number of times people have wound down their windows at traffic lights to ask me about it! PM me if you want to ask anything!
