The Type S is a beautifully constructed
vehicle that exudes quality. The 260 HP

Nothing breaks, change the oil and
drive. Great front seats. A powerful
cruiser. Excellent value when compared
to other high end coupes.
Improve the audio system. Make the
handling more nimble. As the premium
coupe, the Type S should offer the full
range of exterior colors.
