I wish I could afford one because this is the best overall sports sedan ever made. We all know the details about the car but interestingly there was a difference between the two that was noticeable. One felt like it was slower and the drive by wire throttle(sport or standard mode) had a slight hesitation or stumble when applying the power. The DSC seemed to intervene very early and spoil the party. The faster one was going to be roadtested by a certain major magazine. This car felt like it had another 100hp and the DSC never seemed to curtail the power.It makes you wonder if they make sure the magazines get the strong ones. I can't understand how any owner could keep the speed under a 100, the car begs to driven fast. Whats next? 500HP? 600HP?
