I work with a guy who drives one. Its definitely huge and definitely heavy and still handles like a big heavy Cadillac but its fast. He has methanol injection on his and it puts out about 600hp at the flywheel. It does have 6 piston front and 4 piston rear calipers. Cool car but its too huge to have a lot of fun with except in a straight line on the highway. WOW GLS:Maverick...our conversation sent you to the internet to throw slanders about a car you have never seen. That is funny...something about big, heavy and only good in a straight line. Hmmm, my car was built and owned by D3 research and design for SEMA and it was tested and débuted by road and track magazine against a GT500. I think I'll stick with my car at 170+ MPH on a road track versus your R...can your VW even break 100MPH? Just asking!
P.S. Please don’t take this personal…as a car guy, I have to defend my vehicle as I stand behind it. It will thrash a track like nobodies business and of course a GTI-R or what ever that golf cart thing is!

A little Japanese, two Germans and a Swiss two wheeler
My car has 8 piston fronts, 4 piston rears, 15" drilled and slotted rotors, all chrome hubs, 20" 3 piece forgeline race wheels running 295/30/20 in the rear and 255/35/20 in the front without any rub, methanol injection, over drive pulley on the super charger pushing 15 psi boost, one off custom Corsa exhaust, custom chrome intake and filter, Corvette red painted valve covers, custom track proven suspension springs with a 1.5" drop kit, upgraded intercooler, increased capacity reservior with additional cooling fans, custom LED rear bumper facia and many other electronic mods under the hood to control spark timing and water methonal injection all with a custom tune done by D3. You think the car is rare and forgotten...try to find upgrade parts for this car like I have...good luck! Only place is D3 Research and Design out of California. Check out their cars, they are BAD AZZ!
Got any pics?
What's up with the attitude, anyways? Your response to your coworker as well as the vehicle description you entered reeks of chest-thumping douchebag. Most of us here like all cars equally, and I don't think his comment about your car was unkind at all.

When the last gen STS debuted, it certainly was not tops in class in interior appointments. When it received it's MCE, the exterior and interior styling/materials were tweaked to a more upscale standard. Truthfully, the STS' downfall was it's overachieving slightly smaller brother.
