Review

a few minor tweeks and this would have been the best prodcution car ever produced,... period. But unfortunately it is a bit too heavy. But several great firsts and innovations came out on this car before all others. 5 speed Steptronic, EDC and DSC, better than AST+4. reduce empty weight by about 900 pounds would make it so much more drivable, and almsot tossable with the '96 on drive train. But still gets surprising fuel economy for a car this heavy.


Favorite Features

Beautious lines and classy styling, in which btw, form follows function almost perfectly. Suspension and steering are best ever in a production car. Electronic Dampening Control shocks set on sport are great for a 4,500 pound car.


Suggested Improvements

Optimum speed for economy sesm to be abotu 76 mph which yields about 22.5 mpg on the level at ISA conditions. 0-60 would be even better also if you shorten the final drive and optimum speed would drop to about 65 mph.
