    This is mint - nice one

    Question - how about an arosa replacement? Lightweight with a 2pot turbo diesel and 80mpg / <100g/km co2 for free road tax? 750kg or something like that, nippy/sporty/fun to drive for that daily commute.......

    That's what I'm thinking.. maybe some hybrid thing, but a dinky diesel would be pretty cool.

    Theres a massive market for frugal commuters, that actually are a bit fun - like that gordon murray designed thing that i've seen a few times in autocar

    Next big thing imo.

    Scott has just tweeted a quick shot of the FR, posted here for those without twitter.

    But I'm sure they'll be many many more to come over the next week.

    I'll update folks on here with the latest coming in from twitter.

    The car is good fun to drive, nice and poky and go-kart like, despite being a five door. Range saying well over 400 miles at the moment, which will of course adjust as I take it a bit steadier on the way down to pick up Mark bright and early tomorrow.

    Is it comfy, because your going to be sat in it for a while, or are you taking a cushion. :D
