My first impression about the sound of the car is that it sounds alot like the Lamborghini Gallardo. (watch the Tiff Needell review of the Gallardo) Both have V-10's so it's not a coincidence that they sound similar.

All I can say... STIFFY!!!

Even though the egine is not that loud, it sounds like there is plenty of potential. Imagine it with a hot exhaust system on it!

Im glad we finally have a picture of the wheels that aren't blacked out. It'll be interesting to see the first spy shots with the full M conversions, mirrors and all. But what I've seen so far is promising.


You can even see a hint of the rear deck spoiler in this shot:

I remember the first time I heard the S62 roaring out of a nice family sedan, but that thing is going to turn heads! Sounds very very good, and the car IMO is shaping up well. Look at how flat that thing is for being so heavy and (assumedly) driven fast. Gotta love the active sway bars, which work great!
