The bulging quarter panels suggest power on tap but the flat hood and semi-formal roofline make this a grown-up’s car, not a boy racer. It’s the right size, too, making it maneuverable and trim and it never feels clumsy on the road. Obviously there was a huge amount of time invested in the bodywork, and it’s not merely straight but all the gaps were lined up extremely well and all the hinges swing with minimal effort.
