That's like saying you met a girl that you aren't actually physically attracted to, but if you keep talking to her you will realize you should marry her despite that minor detail.

$150k car is supposed to be an emotion decision. There is nothing logical about a $150k practical luxury muscle car.

Might as well just have an electric motor in your uber wagon.
excellent analogy! guess one needs to decide if they want the neurotic supermodel sex addict, or the 7/10 spartan racer doctor divorcee with 3 kids.

umm, well not exactly in comparison with a 650hp 8000rpm V12.
and it's hard to get excited about an engine that sounds like an obese subaru Sti with an exhaust leak.

I think this was already posted earlier.


and for the fat suby sounds:

I'm sure your exact statement has been said many times of 400 or 500 hp cars in the not so distant past. Now those are midrange numbers no one calls wild.

The 662 hp GT500 with the live rear axle is what I would call wild in my experience, within this class of heavy over powered cars.
I was talking more about the numbers than the experience. Personally once you've ridden 200hp superbikes no car will ever offer the same thrill but I am still able to appreciate the performance of a mid 11 sec luxury tank.

The FF & e63S wagon are sum of my fav cars at the moment. I would love to have either... actually having to choose between the 2 would be killer.

My initial response is Porsche. But realistically I'd take the FF.

Fun fact, pretty sure the front transmission can be removed and the FF will still drive. Sooo RWD FF. Also, that V12 sound with an exhaust.
