Re: 159 Test drive next Wed in Milan

If your gonna test one, where better. Enjoy, I loved it. 1.9D was smoother and felt faster than 2.4 due to that ones huge turbo lag and lack of dump valve to keep the turbo spinning between changes.

Grip is superb, and I couldn't get any real understeer even though an oil burner and the 1.9 was in the wet!

Awesome car

As clarkson says, ahead of the rest overall - and the GTS (lower) in the deep red is sooooo gorgeous
