Imagine all the torque dumped on the static drivetrain on a launch...I'm more than curious on how they work out the gearing lubrication and the transient response on the suspension.

looks kinda like a panamera.
Bit disappointed in the glass roof, you can't block the sun fully and the chances of it rattling is much higher.

Other than that for 35KUSD it's a sweet car.

Gonna wait for actual review until ordering one for the parents.
