Great power

This is a very nice luxury sport vehicle with great music and power. I am in love with my car And I’m so happy that legend auto sales took care of me and really help me out and worked with me.


My favorite convertible!!

I wanted a sports-convertible but needed a back seat for a car seat. This is perfect and I feel great driving this car. Smooth ride yet sporty feel!


Love everything about it

Bought is with 5700 miles and 10 months young. Mint in every way. Now at 4 1/2 years old and at 27,500 miles it is wonderful. Smoothe ride, jet fast, beautiful inside and out, sporty, so much nicer inside than current models. They no longer make the 8 cyl. Great large s Dan and it always turns heads. It is the special order designo mystique blue which is a dark blue/purple with gold and silver flake paint..like 3D in the sun. The designo leather and dark ash wood interior and steering wheel. The designo interior is black and white. Perfection.
