    As awesome as this car is it's not designed for North American Roads and speed limits. This car belongs in the left lane of the Autobahn flashing it's high-beams to make all lesser cars bow out of its way. In North America it will never get to be used to its full potential. I live in Vancouver, BC where speed limits are artificially low (thanks Olympic$) and this car would die here. I imagine the engine filling up with sludge because it never got to stretch it's legs and if one dared to brave the upper reaches of the tach, the car would get impounded immediately.

    I like to think that you could get pretty good average mileage from this engine if you could retrain your right foot since the motor doesn't have to hardly work.
