General Comments:

This is such a great car the V6 supercharged engine pulls it nicely. All the luxury trimmings you need even had HBD slight body kit fitted (no rear spoiler) Also FE2 suspension. The auto gearbox is a tad clunky, but other than that the car handles well for a luxury car. I love it.

I have the V8 version and I love it.

The v6 supercharged is a great car! it provides a very clean uncluttered cabin with all the comforts and a clean modern and classy look overall - mine is black and a real head-turner. The car offers a nice smooth ride, the supercharger provides plenty of reserve power without the kick in effect of the turbo. I'll give it 9/10.
