    Default How is this possible?????

    I am here in Los Angeles California at the moment and I have a Ford Crown Victoria as a loaner.

    How can the Americans make a 4.6 V8 so slow! My CLK 220 diesel would kill it!

    They're simple engines, hardly tuned in the slightest. This means you need massive capacity to generate a decent amount of power, but there's a lot less to go wrong. They'll go on forever...

    Yip, drove a big V8 myself the last time I was in the US and it was so a big wallow-y beast. Could sit 3 in the front though!
