It will also feature 19-inch black alloy wheels, a carbonfibre roof and a full leather interior. The show model will be priced from £22,200 when it goes on sale in april next year.

The base model will cost under £20,000.

Well it's certainly far better looking than that hideous mini thingy, I mean that even made the ssangyong rodius look good.

Still an unresolved design, the corporate nose is horrible,there's no V6, and it's looks like a commitee car, no, not special enough, no "jump in me and drive me" looks,and to pricey for the spec, it's an 8/10 car.

At the risk of schoolboy humour...

'Double bubble roof'... and it's called the RC-Z :) (Yes, I'm being that obvious!)

Nothing like over playing the joke ;)
