The gearbox is fine, robbed as it is from a Mazda MX-5, but the clutch operates entirely in the first seven millimetres of travel, maximum torque arrives from 500rpm, and the pedal box is small, so those with large feet better have packed small shoes. And, as for space, it's on the snug side of claustrophobic - for your lower body, at least - though one unexpected advantage is that I'm pretty sure I didn't need the three-point seatbelt because, even if I did crash, there was no way I was being thrown free without the assistance of a giant tin opener and an industrial catapult.
