Is that suppose to be impressive? A $50k Mercedes CLA45 has a faster 0-60 than a Testarossa, and the Mercedes is a 4-cylinder.

All the nay sayers?

I still think it is pretty cool.
Who cares that the prancing horse driver lost his cool and went up in smoke.
He still got smoked by a Jeep. And it is a pretty impressive sleeper.

The Jeep is a manly device. And a womanly device. An American device. It’s a fitting instrument to transport the free people of a free nation with the respect to which we are entitled and the dignity that we deserve. Okay, we’re a little crazy to have a Jeep for a daily driver. But if we go off our meds, we might wind up in a Prius
Go to Heaven for the climate, go to Hell for the company.

Your modern day turbo hatchbacks are faster than 80s super cars.
