    I like the car on paper but I keep hearing similar reports from people that drive them.

    Looks awesome on paper, hence my driving it. Sucks IRL though.

    God awful noise when accelerating
    Nav looks like an afterthought and sucks
    Interior looks like it hasn't been updated since the 90s
    power was nonexistent

    How fast are these cars?

    My friend had a modded Volvo-R and it was pretty quick.
