Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"I have a 2005 Esperante GTLM roadster. And unlike the site statement, it is an automatic, is supercharged and has 525 horsepower from a handmade ford svt 4.6 liter V8. The car is cool ... fun to drive and mechanically reliable. The car, being hand made outside of Atlanta, needs to have its screws and bolts tightened regularly. It is really fun to drive and it's uniqueness makes this a looker. It has rattles .... but is very reliable. They made 170 esperantes, 33 GTLMs, 9 supercharged and 1 automatic."
