Hi Dave!
Thanks for your message! You apparently owned many Duttons! I was wondering what you think about the Legerra?
Is this as fun as a Phaeton? Or does it feel heavier and seems more like a "normal" car? It's probably more comfortable?
I have experienced myself the comfort difference between the Phaeton S2 and S3. I'm myself rather tall and my S3 had a much more spacious cockpit. The S2 has such a narrow cockpit and is also much lower! My head is just touching the roll bar..

Hi, thanks :-). I live very close to denmark, I'd love to see you car when you are here :-)

I am very pleased with it Dave, it has more than enough grunt to use on road in order to put a smile on my face. It is also very driveable right across the rev range using all five gears.

You are not alone I purchased my Leggy off Piston Heads as a rolling chassie and body, rear axle was tacked in with weld no springs  no engine, no gearbox, no loom, no seats or instruments. Still an ongoing project 4 years later but i ist now drivable on the drive way. Getting older does appear to have some thing to do with doing these stupid stunts.
