However, that is to miss the point of this car; there are those who want a track-focused car that can, however irregularly, be used on the road.
They want it new and exciting, and that is the purpose for which we must judge the SR3 SL’s fitness.
It’s not without faults, but those it does have are typically of a minor nature.
It could be a better-mannered road car, it could have sharper throttle response and its brakes ought to be more easily modulated in the wet. But those are small quibbles.
For us, its shortcomings as a road car wouldn’t break the deal.
