Yes its the engine Its a fast sleeper until you go M power then it becomes a monster fast car with a sound that halts all that are behind you. The only way to make it safe for the public driver is SMG trans controlling the massive power plant . The very tall 7 gears allow you to surpass just about anything on the road with having a cruising speed of 80mph. I think the engine and drivetrain are unmatched.
