    Anthony Crawford
    Senior Road Tester
    Anthony Crawford drove this car and these were their findings:
    Hits
    • Much more than an M5 on steroids
    • Astonishing linearity with all the major mechanicals
    • Feels lightweight, even though it tips the scales at 1825kg
    Misses
    • Not the latest and greatest screen tech inside
    • You'll need to ensure you can actually get yourself out of those front seats
    • Australia only got 20 cars
