For its power, the Sport Turbo represents rather good value; it would take £30,000-plus to get similar poke from one of its rivals. Standard equipment is a bit of a misnomer here; it comes down to mechanical spec rather than radios or leather trim, and here the Westfield, by the time you’ve got the options you’d want, still comes in at a price beginning with a ‘2’.
We wouldn’t expect it to hold its value quite as well as a Caterham or Ariel, but it is stronger than conventional sports cars. And in our experience, insurance costs are reasonable for any car from a company that offers self-builds.
The Sport Turbo likes a drink, mind you, which is a particular pity given its 40-litre tank size (and a fuel gauge that’s keen to urge you to fill up). Relax on a long touring run and you might approach 30mpg, but get the turbo spinning and that quickly drops to the low 20s. On a track day, expect low teens.
