i had one many years ago on a holiday in Corfu. Decided to take it up a track to the highest peak - think I missed the bit about 'Unsuitable for cars'. Well it made it apart from last 100 yards.
On way down, I must have picked up a stone in rear axle as there was this whirring noise. It was a hire car and I could live with the noise. On way back to villa, suddenly I lost all power. The stone had ground through rear axle and sheared the drive shaft resulting in no drive. Thankfully the nearest house was not too far and occupied by someone who had learned his English from watching Americian movies - a most surreal experience listening to him littered with catch phrases from Hollywood blockbusters.
The car certainly performed above expectations even with the problem with rear axle.
