Great stuff Pete. And a nice in-your-face to all the naysayers that said a 4.0 would never happen; would never have 500hp; or that the car is too heavy. Love it.

+1, thanks

I think I will stick with my RS, no sense in spending 50K more

50K is a bargain. If I had the money to get one at MSRP I would.

Maybe, hopefully I will have enough money in a few years to bridge the gap between 3.8 and 4.0....

...I want one, but, I'm a patient man. At least, that's what I have to keep reminding myself

Well he said it himself, perfect car for the bubble wrappers. Comparable to 2.7 RS

Great post!

And for the record, I would lurve to buy a 4.0. I think it'll be amazing! It's just hard to justify it...

True but how many bubble-wrapped 2.7 RS's do you see floating around. Most ended getting properly driven.
