I say 'sort of' because it had the suspension and running gear of the ST but a diesel engine.
The car, as far as I am aware, was only ever produced for the Spanish market and served us very well indeed; aside from eating tyres it never let us down, not even a light bulb.

I wish car makers would do the opposite (ST engine, but small wheels, softer suspension etc).

The worst I've come across is my daughters R53 Cooper S with sports plus suspension and runflat tyres on 17 inch wheels. It had just as well be a go cart the suspensions so hard. Too hard to take full advantage of on the fast section of the B3081 at the top of Zig Zag Hill. :cry:


I have noticed a trend where car makers seem to be fitting 'sporty' cars with suspension so hard that they're slower than a ordinary car in daily life, because the drivers can't cope with the discomfort of driving fast on solid suspension over roads where the surface bears a striking resemblance to the surface of the moon.

Picker her up today, very nice to drive. Lots of grunt.

Very precise and good handling for a FWD car. Nice noise too!!
