Art, congrats on the new ride. Those cars are sweet and my county sheriff's department has recently put 5 of the interceoptor version in service. Talking with one of the deputys that I know, he said that they are fast
One thing last night, I pulled out of a parking lot making a right turn. Had to pull out in traffic, and it stuck like glue and FLEW. Of course, traffic stopped dead a few hundred feet up the road. Snapped off the throttle and hit the brakes, the thing kept pulling... like the fly-by-wire wouldn't let off the throttle while the turbos were in boost.
Second time I've noticed this behavior. Not a bad thing, just gotta get used to it continuing to pull after letting off the go-pedal
I'm assuming there's no blow-off valve? Or if there is, it's very quiet?
To be honest, it will be the fastest car I've ever owned. Which is a good thing, actually. If I had owned something this fast back in my 20's, I probably wouldn't be here now
I was just looking at one at the dealer. Cool looks all blacked out. I had a new 2008 GT500, and only put 900 miles on it. Gawd awful fast!!! That's why it is no longer in the fleet. Really had no use for it. I found myself cruising at 95-100 with ease. Sorry to say, had to sell it and move on. Like you said, if I had that when I was 20, I too wouldn't be here to talk about it.
Best of luck with the new purchase!
