Even the auto SHO is faster than the Aurora but the Aurora is a lot more technically innovative and luxurious.
The 5 speed SHO can do 0-60 in 6.6 sec and the quarter at about 95 mph. The auto is about 1 sec slower.
The Aurora is a lot heavier car and posts about an 8 sec 0-60 run. An SSEi is faster.

If I was your Dad, I would go with the Aurora. It'* a better car and with a few mods can be just as fast.
Besides, the Taurus is a Ford.

Yes...stock for stock, SHO is faster then SSEi and Aurora.

Modded an SSEi can be faster then an SHO.

An Aurora has a 4.0L V8 putting down 250HP at the crank with 260 tq, but it has a VERY restricted exhuast. Open it up a bit and it can keep up with an SSEi (stock) if you mod a Bonnie with an SC its all over

As for toys it cannot be beat, oh and if you go with the Aurora, take a look at the Autobahn performance package, otherwise its an old fart car....lots toys, but you want some go

Aurora = Sexy, powerful, luxurious, etc.

Aurora with QQX = the sh**

SHO = fugly, FORD (no offense) maybe fast, but I'd rather have a something that makes me look twice at it too.

QQX is an RPO code...

Its the Autobahn package, includes V-rated Michelin tiresm 3.71:1 gear transaxle ratio. And governed at 140 mph, so what you see on the speedo is what you get
