    i kept hearing they were filming batman in the city, i wish i would have went down sooner to check it out and maybe run into this.

    I like this, i just wish the pictures were a little bit clearer

    I cant wait to see what the final numbers on the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6

    I don't. This car looks more like a Lexus IS/ES, both of which are probably more powerful, better built and better on the resale value/peace-of-mind scale. There is no compelling reason for me to buy this car.

    This statement is all you need to know about 90% of domestic offerings.

    I'm a GM guy, but american manufacturers have fucked up big time.

    Ford should drop a FI 3.0 into this thing, or a transverse mounted mod motor.... or anything that would make it more than a weak ass attempt to match entry lux jap cars.

    We hate on the SRT-4 Dodge's around here, but at least a ~280 horse turbo for ~$20,000 is a reason to shop.

    Great analysis Sweet.

    Not sure what to think about the looks...I don't know anything about the car, other than the fact that I won't be buying one.

    wiki can be edited by anyone.

    As far as what we know, well, we already knew the MKS would be the first to receive the new twin-turbo, 3.5-liter V6 (with an expected top level of 380 horses) coming out from the engineering and development team of the Dearborn-based automaker

    this is what they are reporting, but the final numbers dont seem to be known.

    I misread the wiki. The Concept car had the 4.4, the production will be the 3.5
