Continual Evolution - 5 Page Feature
"... fresh and very stylish design that has the sort of outline that you look at and pick-up little clever touches all over it. It's retro yet very modern...", "...I'd conclude by calling it a muscle car, done in a highly British way"."There's also not much in the kitcar world to touch it for practicality. There's one of the nicest hardtops I've seen that pops on for use in inclement weather, it features doors that lock, a curved windscreen, so the occupants don't get blown to bits, nice wide sills that enable ladies to retain their modesty when getting in and out, and a simply huge boot". "Therefore it is a kitcar GT par excellence. Highly practical and a car you could use everyday". "It's all topped off nicely by the merest dab of throttle, which sends the Evolution spearing off towards the horizon"."I was mightily impressed with the GKD Evolution. It's a great kitcar...". "From trackday hooligan to everyday road car to grand tourer to Tesco shopper, it can do everything with ease, while it's the sort of car you'll happily have parked outside your house. In this instance, the Evolution name describes the continual development perfectly !

Cossie Clout - 5 Page Feature

BRAVE NEW WORLD - 7 Page Feature
"... there's little doubt that everyone who sees the car as we cruise around looking for a photo location is impressed. This car has the wow factor with both adults and children alike".
"Slotting into the drivers seat only adds to the anticipation. This was always a great place to be - the cabin wraps around you perfectly, remaining snug yet strangely spacious. The driving position is excellent, with good space down in the tunnel for you feet on the floor-mounted pedals and a natural feel for the steering wheel and gear lever".
"... cars like the EVOLUTION could be our future. It's a brave new world out there!".
