    My car

    My wife has the Copen, a superb little motor, everything you could wish for in a fun "sports" car exept practicality but you ain;t gonna buy it for practicallity now are you!!

    It's a real head turner a "what on earth is that" type of car and handles like a dream - I too noticed no difference in handling with the roof down. It has loads of standard kit and loads of dealer extras starting to come through.

    There's no boot when the roof is down, but no problem: simply get a rear luggage rack for an mgf and fit that to it, then head to the country with your picnic.

    We thorougly recommended this car if you want to be different.

    My car

    The Copen I found to be superb fun to drive - with excellent handling - keep the revs up and love every gear change! The boot had plenty of space with the roof up. The folding roof is very easy to live with. I found no change in handling with the roof down. Economy was superb - especially on RON 97 unleaded fuel. I love it I love I love it! It's understated and not pretentious like some sports cars and the looks are classic and will appeal forever!
