Great town car - a little go kart - looks are 'marmite'

I love the looks - both my teenagers who have learned to drive using it hate it.
Pros outweigh cons - fantastic around town, tight spaces & car parks. Solidly built and comfortable for 2 - 3 at a pinch. Cruises OK on flat motorways and if you feather the accelerator you can get some impressive MPG, but otherwise mostly in the high 30s /low 40s. If you're willing to trash it a bit, it's just like driving a go kart.....
Cons -zero boot space (space behind driver with seat folded down is the defect boot), no engine power to tackle hills so lots of gear usage when it comes to one,,radio controls very basic and awkward

Still think it's a bit of a design classic, and given 10-15years might become sought-after.
