    haha, drivability in a 5500 lbs+ LUXURY car is more important than running a 13 second 1/4!!1

    Next time, consult the dictionary before you end up writing sentences that make no sense whatsoever.

    exactly where is the mistake? paramount is not just a movie studio, friend.


    here's the word origin, too:

    Anglo-Norman paramont, above : par, by (from Latin per. See per1 in Indo-European Roots) + amont, above, upward; see amount.]

    how's that? nice ride, enough torque to move it along, and nice interior (for the time).
