Not Our Wheelhouse, But...

I think we should all raise a glass to what is probably the last best shot at normally aspirated IC engines for "street" cars. Kudos to Cosworth for wrapping up what they started long ago. Listen longingly. Too, too bad that roads in general in USA can't support its host vehicle all that well. Track time, anyone?

I agree. It is sad to see all these turbo engines in cars many of which have to add sound to make the exhaust note sound good. As a matter of routine, they are coupled with CVT transmissions. It is all about miles per gallon, but that attitude saps driver enjoyment. QP5 offers more smiles per gallon than any car I ever owned.

Both the car and the engine sound ( pure AURAL sex ) stir the soul of any car enthusiast.

I couldn't agree more...as beautiful as the car may be, the sound is one of the sexiest parts hands down.
