Nice car. I think 24.5k euro is a moonshot though

Not in Europe. The prices these cars fetch over there are mindboggling.

I don't like the color blue on a car, but that one, wow!! I would be proud to own and drive that beauty! I have always loved how the doors make that distinct sound when they are closed. Great video, thanks for sharing.
