    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    Hee, heee,

    tell me about it, they are more fun to drive around town than the CX turbo... You see your drive them as fast as humanyl possible.... Trhash the absolute sh!t out of them, redline through each gear .... Be this adrenalin crazed lunatic that appears to everyone around you to be bent on suicide via car accident... And your not breaking the speed limit The stunned look on peoples face when you pass them on the inside lanes of roundabouts defies belief...

    Unfortunatly for what they are they are enormously overpriced out here.... If they were Renault 4 prices I'd have one in a heartbeat (anyone for 50mpg++ driving to work and back ).

    I think you know who I'm talking about and believe me from what I've seen of the car it's looks to be a real good buy. I would have snapped it up - a real cutey... but yes your right similar cars would sell for $8 - 12k which makes them more than a hobby.
