Black car with black wheels and red racing seats.

Very fun car to drive. Never had rotary engine before and was new to what to expect. It is a 6 speed. Very easy to handle and takes corners well. Only problem has been low compression but has since been fixed. Seems to start better on cold start first thing in morning. Not too great on short trips turning off and on.
