Perhaps you should expand your knowledge of the language and look up the word "paragon".

Or, failing that, perhaps you can explain to me how 14/20 in a 3600 pound, four-liter car is actually a terrific achievement.

I look forward to your response.
I agree with the gist of your point...too many defensive folks on here.

One disagreement I have, however, is that the S65 is a wonderful engine. Could it have been better? absolutely. But there is nothing wrong about this high revving 4 liter engine, and although we can get into debates on technical pros/cons, there is a reason why this engine won "engine of the year" in its category 4 years straight.
