The twin-rotor Wankel engine is so smooth and quiet that drivers can easily over-rev it, causing rapid wear of rotor seals, so a buzzer now gives audible warning at 6,500 r.p.m. Intensive research into materials for seals and the surface of the engine casing has also increased engine life. With its all-independent strut suspension the car has exemplary ride and road holding.
