The best luxury car by quite some measure



General Comments:

Without doubt the best car I have ever owned.

The ride and power is unsurpassed, and the car has presence that a Lexus could never hope to match.

The power is relentless as it is smooth, it overtakes anything in its path with the utmost ease.

The car has exceeded my every expectation, and anyone that rides in it always comes back for another go.

The perfect car for any occasion, outstanding. The attention to detail is unbelievable, and the car exudes quality unlike anything else.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

This review was written the same year the car was made, which means it should have been perfect. I wonder how the car aged? If it is anything like mine, the repairs were horrible and the owner is now looking at a Lexus LS like I am.
