I hope it’s as funny as I’m expecting to be, as this is the eventual decider for my poor old knackered Corolla and it’s time with me.
Basically plans for now, (if it all goes well getting an MOT and getting delivered) are as above - I have a mildly tuned one on GT Sport, and I want to build the same thing here. I wanted to build the GT86 I had in Gran Turismo as well but, budget constraints and I enjoy that car too much as it is so a Copen seems a vastly cheaper way of realising that. This car is cheap as Copens go and there is a huge supply of used tuning parts available in Japan where they have a massive following - this one is an import so helpfully has the Japanese electrical system.
Plus I really want to get into track days and while I know there are many more obvious starter cars for track use, I have this image in my head of a Copen with about 100hp hissing and whooshing around somewhere like Croft with the big boys and it just makes me smile.
Also it’s 17 man and it’s not even the earliest - how is the Copen old enough to vote now?! Still feels like a new car to me.
