Default New Taurus VS LeSabre

Raced a brand new Taurus SES today. Funny thing was that it was an older guy that was driving it. We were at a stop light and he was revving his engine so I did the same. When the light turned green we both stomped it. between 0 and 25 I was pulling ahead of him, but after that he whooped me. That'* embarassing.. I got killed by a Taurus. :'(

I just looked it up a minute ago. 200 horsies for the new Taurus SES. the base model only has 150 though. Too bad it wasn't the base model instead of the highest model (SES). I have 20 ft-lbs more of torque though.

Default no actually,

Well, actually the highest model is the SEL. The SES model is placed in between the SE and SEL. There is the bottom of the line LX which has the 150hp. V6.
