Comments:

Not many cars with a $40,000 sticker price have 500 horsepower. The classic six speed manual transmission drew me to it but now there's a seven speed transmission. One benefit is the steering wheel paddles which are great when you want both hands on the wheel. Those are a few of the definite pros, along with having braking and handling that makes it drive like a super coupe. Some of the cons would be though the fact that the interior is the same as its older brothers. I'm a BMW guy through and through so I know. It makes the inside slightly boring as compared to the newer cars. Also, the crash test safety ratings are not as high as they could (or should) be. But if you can overlook that, you should enjoy the ride. The v10 feels extremely deep in the accelerator, but may be held back by the transmission. Some claim that the shifting could definitely be much smoother when applying hard acceleration, but who expects that from a stock car? It's not exactly gas efficient either. But with these impressive engine specs, you shouldn't expect that. The safety and interior is what holds it back. But overall an amazing car.
