World class engineering....397 KW output....right! .... and the rpm these rigs spin at? Bet they won't stay together to race another day, too. Porches/Audi...hmmmmm think there is a brain-trust there?
I drove an A-8 last year and was blown away. Nothing I could ever afford 'to register', let alone buy, but once in a lifetime it's fun to dream...... I have friends at the local Chev/Cadillac dealership who tease me into a test drive once in a while.....yes they are IMPRESSIVE cars also, but....................The VOLT: I see them on the road all the time, and it's weird to see no exhaust 'fog' on cold days.
It was comfortable, good seating elevation, peppy, quiet and looks good. Fit and finish were very good also, but 43,400 smackers.......damn, double dammit! Forget the rebate...you and I are paying that one....no free lunches here!
You can't even order enough on a new Prius to get to 40K!.......and I see hundreds of those a month. Oh, here is one for all you Rav-O-Vac Rompers...Try to move a Prius on slippery ground. Traction control tells you to 'F-off'.
You will want your ole Chevy back after you get out in a muddy road because the part we call "operator influence" IS NOT POSSIBLE! Yah, I got muddy sneakers.....only once however, never again.
I thought VW had a V10 and a V12 diesel back in the old WW2 underground jet assembly facilities.......ref: Motor Trend and Popular Science
.......They are faster because they make MORE POWER! Efficient power, usable power.....wonder how long it will be before they are outlawed or restricted......Can you imagine any trucker made to switch to a high revving gasoline engine over his (or her) 400 to 600 hp Cummins/Cat/Detroit/Mercedes Bends (those electronic gremlins fixed yet?) ....didn't hear they were......Freightliner Woes...
