Sweet. Any x-1/9 powering out of / or into a turn gets my vote....

It's great to see that these cars are being used so often. These cars are fabulous to drive and 265,000 is awesome. I hope to put that many on mine once it is completed. Great job!

The X is so at home being driven to it's limits. It's a chassis and drive train that is designed, begs and needs to be drive hard all the time to appreciate and enjoy what this car offers. Best of all, if the X is properly cared for and maintained with proper parts, it very reliable. It's capable of getting near 40 mpg while delivering even more fun per gallon of fuel. And, if the owner chooses, the X can be made into a under 2000 lb, 300+ Bhp screamer with not too much difficulty. This chassis IS that good. Sad to see few car folks recognize it's potential and the designs historical significance in the world of automotive design.

I had one of these in the 80's. Some drunk hit it at 3 o'clock in the morning and totalled it. Man it handled well. Mine looked the same...bright yellow.
