Perfectly normal for this car.
They are not really designed for our USA type sustained freeway driving, it is a sports car.
Tune it, adjust the valves, re-new timing chain, tighten up the suspension, new Bilstiens, put the 14" aluminum (from diesel) rims on, lightweight tires. enjoy the ride.
Listen to the fine sounds of a made-for-RPM motor
