I have that article. I read it alot, I love the GXP in that article. I would probably want a bright silver GXP instead of a "maroon" color.

Yeah. I expected the 0-60 times to be better but I can't complain seeing that it'* under 7 seconds. I am almost disgusted with the Crown Vic, ALMOST. I like the Crown Vic just because of its repuation (meaning that cops drive it and if you see any Crown Vics on the road, you will automatically assume it'* a cop) and the 300C is a stellar RWD car. Still think it'* slighty unfair for a FWD to compete against two RWD, that'* like bringing a knife to a gunfight IMO

they arnt that bad, they actually handle pretty good.

However IMO the GXP was sorta a mistake for GM, they should have stayed with the Series III 3800 with a smaller pulley or something to net 280 hp or something along those lines.

it'll be a while before GM or Ford builds something to match the $$/performance/lux ratio of the 300C.

People were not going to pay close to $40,000 for a tired series III 3800 */c bonneville. They want refinement for that price and thought the N* was the answer. apparently is was too late for that. I think the 5300 they are using is a great update. It has the great low end pull of the 3800 but its more up to date v8 design.

I think they need to keep the N* out of sport sedans and keep it in refined luxury cars.
