I have one, it's fun and very fast.

There are a couple to be had as mentioned above.

Yeah I think 3 available. One was tuned on a German race track, maybe not for fuel economy!

What are cars like this actually for?

Absolutely pointless on public roads, and can only be used effectively on a track.  If you have one, what do you do with it when not racing?

Sorry,  Mick.

It's perfectly fine as a daily driver, fun on winding country roads and overtaking is much easier than in my previous hybrids.

I am actually enjoying have 3 pedals for the first time in 23 years.

Seats are very comfy too for my 59 year old backside.

I can understand this - I have to have 2 cars for the same affect, one being an old school V8 convertible - good for country lanes and setting off car alarms in multi-storey car parks.

Regarding the carwow drag races, I would like to see all the Yaris options in one: petrol, diesel, hybrid and GRMN. My guess would be the hybrid would get to 50 yards first and then the GRMN zooms past to win. Chuck in a Zoe and BMW i3 to add to the mix.

If you get it right, the GRMN will beat all the other models off the line and after that, no contest.

It's also remarkably cheap to insure, only £211 with AVIVA.

That's for a 59 year old male, full NCD and 5000 miles a year.

Check out this to see how EVs can pull away and be first to a 30-50 yard sprint ☺️
