Same, we were looking for one before we bought the current project, they were just too rare / expensive

The Imp was a great car, badly let down by poor quality control, some lack of investment in design & testing, and screwed up by the trades unions.

I recall rallying in a 998 Imp and it was certainly as good as a 1071 or 970 Cooper 'S'.
