My brother had a new '91 SC; that was a sweet car back in the day.
3.27 gears in this one seem wrong given the low redline non-peaky power delivery. Could have stood for even taller gears maybe.

Apparently only 5 were actually produced.

These cars are a really neat driving experience. Not the SWB, of course, but the regular SC. The car, especially in automatic trim, have a an almost lincoln-like ride quality to them. I don't know that I would call it pleasing or good, but its interesting. I like it, but it can be rattly and loose in normal driving, but while driving them hard or fast they feel quite composed. The power comes on strong and linear and is very, very satisfying to roll on the power.
Thanks for posting this up.

Quite impressive that they claim the top speed of the stock super coupe to be 146; a '94 mag i have has the v8 bird capped out at 106! That swb design cleans up the lines a bit; looks nice in that front quarter shot. I also like that early dash carryover as opposed to the later sloping mess. Nice cars with good power potential in between head gasket changes. Ha, that doorlock touchpad brings back memories of my grandfather's '92 grand marquis although opening those doors exposed a velour couch as opposed to a cage and racing seats!
