Ah yes, the mighty Grand National! I'm a diehard and devout 3 pedal guy but I will not withhold respect and admiration for a car designed to do one thing and did it exceedingly well.

And that's to be a decent daily driver with deliciously brutal acceleration. It had no Euro-style pretensions or ambitions, all it wanted was to lay waste to everything in a straight line. Sometimes a car can definitely transcend its transmission (and suspension).

My former Director's C63 reminded me of the GN, LOL. Just like Clarkson, he says he doesn't need Powerpoint slides to explain what the car is all about.
