The Magnificent Seven is a remake of Kurosawa's violent classic The Seven Samurai. In a similar vein, today's Vauxhall-poweredNice Price or Crack Pipe Caterham is a remake of an iconic Lotus, but it too may be magnificently violent.
Yesterday's Testarossa was at one time magnificent, but to this day it remains far from pretty. That's okay, because in certain supercars the brutality of their performance should be matched with looks that demand you don't stare too long lest their form be considered more memorable than their function. Imagine if Mike Tyson looked like Halle Berry? Opponents would stand there, slack-jawed in awe of the perfection, leaving Mike open to one-punch their spines into the cheap seats. Ouch. Despite rocking a bigger ‘80s vibe than a The Facts of Life marathon, that homely Maranello matron also rocked your world to the tune of a 60% Nice Price win.
