- Brutal, brutal speed from its 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8. Something this big shouldn’t be so fast in a straight line, but it is.
- It bombs along mountain roads with surprising poise. Those big tyres grip up on mountain passes.
- The eight-speed transmission is polite, smooth, and a worthy companion for stop-start traffic and situations where you need to creep the car, like soft-roading over terrain
- Its front pews aren’t only gorgeous to look at, they’re also great to sit in. You can even adjust how tight you want them to grab you.
- From some angles the car manages to blend style and aggression quite nicely. We like it from a rear three quarter view.
- Don’t expect this thing to emerge unscathed from soft-road situations, if it’s easy to kiss a kerb in the city, so those huge rims will eventually nick something out in the wilderness.
- Expect to pay a lot to replace such huge tyres, especially for the stock standard Michelin performance rubber.
- The rear-end can feel a little unhinged when driven fast over rough surfaces.
- Conceptually the car is at a loss. A performance SUV coupe? An oxymoron at its finest.
- Coupe body shape steals a little rear headroom.
- As good as it is, when hustling, the eight-speed will stutter on the down change from third to second.
