Focussed carbon-heavy track car with a turbo’d Audi engine and superlative looks. A tad soft, but that can be sorted relatively easily by adjusting the suspension

Good stuff

Once you’ve twigged it’s not race-car twitchy, it shows itself to be a well-sorted tool

Bad stuff

Is the handling a little too safe? Plus the base car isn't that quick


What is it?

GIven that it looks utterly mad and is totally impractical, it should really be built in Britain. Odd, then, that the KTM comes from the otherwise sensible Austrians. The 300 is crazily fast but quite comfortable too. Pack a helmet. And a scarf.

What's the verdict?

The handling isn't as committed as its looks would lead you to believe, but is that a bad thing?
