Another great review that makes my mouth dry as I read it. My favorite line

"there’s genuine shove from 2000 rpm, the advanced electronics altering the intake system, fuel-injection mixture and valve timing to help give it the sort of bottom-end savagery to make the old 3.2-liter six seem ordinary"

This is the sort of stuff you want to here when talking about a newer generation of car.

Interesting. In this article, they state it has twin piston calipers. Clarification anyone? Steved?

I was interested in the 19s being made by Fuchs and not BBS, ala the CSL wheels.

He said they had the 19s, but someone had said earlier all press cars had the 18s.
