Absolutely Love It!

Perfect compromise between road holding and comfort with adaptive dampers. Sounds great under acceleration and I find the 3.5 litre naturally aspirated engine very progressive and refined. Ample boot space for long touring trips. I achieved 36.3mpg over 2k Miles touring France which is frankly unbelievable in such a powerful car.
I’ve had so many “good” cars over the years but this one beats them all.
