Power is provided by a twin-turbo 5.0-liter V8 engine that develops 650 HP (478 kW) and 710 Nm (524 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to an upgraded eight-speed automatic transmission which enables the 2070 kg (4,563 lb) sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph).

That's one ugly car. The front grille looks like it came from a Ford Five Hundred.

The rear of that thing is hideous. And they should have left a Lexus Logo on it.

Chrome and wheels need to go!

And yeh, the specs are amazing. Some people were even speculating it to go upto 9000rpm but I guess they were wrong.

That would not be impossible. JMD Impreza WRXs have 8.5K RPM redline, if I remember correctly. And LFA's V10 got its max rpms lowered from 1.500 RPM. There are modded Impreza WRX's that have 11K redline. Wether it is useful is another question.

Those who prefer Japanese cars over European will like it, but it's ugly. The running boards look like they came off a pickup truck.

That is why you drive BMW.


I don't care what brand, I care how good the car is.
