I suppose it puts them ahead of the game if they're going to do it early. Makes sense to concentrate on just the electric cars and not waste money on fossil fuel car development.

Off the top of my head......

No years to avoid.

Issues to look for:

Leaking rear diff. Diff's need regular oil changes to avoid leaks / seals blowing. Otherwise its a new diff.

Rusting subframes braces (underneath the car) - its usually surface and they can be taken off and refurbed easily, but have a look underneath.

Active exhaust valves can stick. corrode, so check they work.

V8S can be mapped to V8R power.

Make sure it has the performance seats.

Make sure it has parking radar - front and back - you cant see where the corners are very easily in a car park. Some only come with rear radar.

They stone chip like crazy at the front and leading edges by doors unless PPF'd or looked after.

Check the convertible roof - check for fraying and joint health. You can stop the roof at any point while it's opening and closing by letting go of the button - good for inspection.

Check under the boot floor for damp - sometimes seals let in if the drains are not cleaned out.

Infotainment is shite, but for £500 you can fit a decent android auto / carplay module in a morning. Brilliant.

Test drive one - i found the V8 to have too much power to push it on the road. Sound nice though.

Good solid cars - not had a real problem. I'd make sure you get a warranty just in case and I know a good Independant in Brum who services mine.

I love mine. If you need any other info let me know.
