Sort of agree Darren, I like the larger wheel cut outs at the rear to make the back look a little less girly. But like you they, do little for me, and having driven nearly all derivatives I don't like them on the road either.

They need serious modification before they become chuckable and they very tyre choice dependant.

Just realised, they didnt do a coupe bodied lightweight? or did they?

Still cool as though.... :)
All factory are coupes - with a strange nose shape and a different curvature to the.

There were a lot of lightenned cars produced with aluminium punts which were roadsters, which were produced for private teams. It is these you probabaly thought of, and most are now recreations.
Look for little winglets behind teh front wheel opennings for any 'lightweighiness'

Hell - I sound like a geek
