Just taken delivery of my new Milano Red CTR, Lurrrrvvvvvv every inch of it. What I cannot understand is why just about every review I have read, bangs on about the car's lack of torque and pull when in a high gear.

It pulls cleanly from thirty in sixth!!!! I kno it gets even better when you get the vtech going, but this is certainly not a car that needs to be thrashed to get some decent speed up. My Saab 9000 aero wasnt much better in top gear. Is it just me that thinks the mags are overeacting?

Warmest Regards
Rob

It's because they compare it it to all it's turbo charged rivals, what they are saying isn't wrong, it's just not in the correct context.

i have come from a remapped 1.9 m-jet with about 400 nm of torque thanks to a tunit box and the only time i feel torque from the engine is from around 70 mph and above there is no torque below that point :)
