Wow!! I also like how it doesn't encourage you to change up a gear until you red line it. :D

Yes, I presume even he would approve of a front engined front drive car accelerating like that :thumbup:

Yes, a tempting piece of technology that is. I wonder how it will perform on daily basis.

Right now I can compare with the 1.8 TSI (turbo petrol) by VW I'm driving at the moment. That engine has a very sluggish behavior. It doesn't like to be revved and it needs tiiiiiiimmmmme to hit the red zone. Definitely not for the sporty driver.

Hi fans of RCZr
I am a bit late to join and a bit skeptical about video, as if I push my RCZr hard my fuel consumption computer cay 30 lit this one shows 3,3 lit/100km a bit too low even for cruising downhill,

Very very impressive!!!! Only just seen this video. The Alcons were under some pressure in that clip to stop at that speed!

this one looks real as fuel consumption on computer shows up to 30 lit, so he had to disable limiter, as RCZr has limiter to 250km/h, s per manual of the car
