I saw one of these drive by me the other day and I remembered how much I like these cars. With a face only a mother could love and a 340hp, all aluminum 4.5-liter V8. Car & Driver said this was the quickest and fastest car in its 2003 comparison of mid-level luxury cars. It did only place fifth against the likes of Mercedes, BMW, Audi, and Lexus, and only beat Lincoln and Jaguar. They're complaints were the cramped cabin and orange gauges, neither of which concern me. I want one.
