This is a true sports car. So don't look for cruise control or a comfy ride. The engine is super strong. The turbo doesn't kick in smooth. Watch your RPMs. The car goes faster than the gears allow, i.e., you hit the rev-limiter before hitting top speed. But this car isn't about how fast you can go. This car is about how much fun you can squeeze out of a car. On the fun scale, it scores 11 out of 10. Despite its many factory installed features, owners still need to add on after the fact to make it a complete ride.
