Wow!

Ok, I need to mod my Camaro now, I can't let there be a Taurus that's faster.

Do you think it's STOCK? At least the wheels aren't.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.

Not surprising. They will be able to tune quite a bit of power into that TT. We can say it's ugly (though I think it's really mean looking), but there is no Chevy variant. Ford, again, owns this segment. It sure would be nice to officially give us the Chevy "G8"... Edit: I forgot that even Dodge has a nice fast-family option in the Charger (which is also available with AWD and the Hemi).

It must have a tune considering it's AWD, weighs like 4200lbs and makes 365hp. I can not see a completely stock one going that quick, but who knows. I'd like to know the mph.

Those cars will only get quicker - that is a badass powertrain!

Now if I get used to the exterior

I think it is this car. That has a Tune Only

I believe the MPH was 108.

I think they are bad ass looking!
Ford's got a huge winner on their hands with the new Taurus.

Too bad the Impala SS got discontinued, it'd give a Taurus SHO a run for its money.
