Very good driving dynamics. The brakes and steering are world class -- the benchmark for the rest of the competition!
Upgraded engine. The 2.5L from the Cougar would be great! A diesel option would be great for the U.S.! (i.e. import the European TDCi)
Throttle tip-in is TOO sensitive; hard to modulate acceleration rate from a dead stop.
