Re: Clarkson & the 159
‘The 2.2 (front-wheel drive) has the performance of a plant.’ (Brera)
‘The 2.2 litre engine is a peach that just begs to be taken outside and given a damn good thrashing. It just gives you a simple four-cylinder engine that, all on its own, sounds better and better until you’re up at 6500 when it sounds like a metallic werewolf. But the engine, torquey, powerful and smooth though it may be, is not the best part of this car.’ (159)
Jeremy Clarkson talking about the same engine…enlightenment anyone?
