IT IS: Convertible four-seater with all-wheeldrive and 500 horse power 4-litre engine with an eight speed automatic gearbox.
HOW FAST: Nearly 190mph with 0-62 in five seconds.
HOW THIRSTY: 20mpg at worst, 30mpg at best (motorway cruising).
HOW MUCH: £139,000 but the test car came in at £185,230 thanks to big bills for the carbon ceramic brakes (£10,405), Naim hi-fi (£3,285), that yellow paint (£9,030), interior carbon trim and colour spec (£7,345), adaptive cruise control (£2,045), theft tracking (£1,345), vamped exhaust (£860) and other bits of stuff.
