I drove one today. I have an SSEi right now, and I can say that the GXP was a bit disappointing.
I was expecting a fire breathing V8 monster, but it was pretty docile really. The acceleration was good, slighly faster than the SSEi but not what I expected.
The sales guy was raving about it so I thought I would show him how the Bonnie'* really handle, and I threw it around a couple of tight roundabouts at about 55Mph. Wheel squeel and it gripped like glue and it was a nice handling car. I actually scuffed up the sides of the tires on that roundabout !! The sales guy was freaking out I think. Did a couple of high speed standing starts 0-80 and 80-0 and it was pretty sweet. Nice brakes.
Engine sounds great, it just needs a little more power though.
Now they just need to supercharge the V8 and then I will be one happy camper.....
