Not at more than double the price ($130k) and 50% more weight (nearly 6k lbs). Pressing the brakes on that thing or taking a turn at any kind of speed would be unnecessarily scary
Still, it's DAMN fast for a luxurious land barge.
That new C Class looks REALLY nice, if you hadn't already seen an E or S Class. It seems too derivative... The taillights are weirdly small.
The ATS-V seems like it would be stuck in between competitors like the RS3, 135i M Sport, and CLA 45 AMG and the established bigger brother RS4, M3, or C 63 AMG. It will be interesting to see what it can actually do. GM is probably flogging it on the Nur.
