Reviewa few minor tweeks and this would have
been the best prodcution car ever
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
Best FeaturesBeautious 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.
Worst FeaturesOptimum 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.
