Okay, there are some things you tend to associate with a certain name after having many years of the same. The M Division distinguishes itself with high revving NA engines and a Special focus on making road cars into machines that place an astonishing amount of emphasis on driver involvement.

These Contraptions are none of those things by nature. You cannot have an SUV Sports Car. Yes, the mags will be singing praises on how good they are over the standard but you will never hear them being compared to a normal car.
