After getting a reservation a few weeks ago, I went for a test drive yesterday in Zürich/Switzerland, and let me first start by saying that my mind was blown away by the power, first time in a test drive that I let a "holy ...." slip. And I drive a Corvette C6 on everyday basis, so used to (peak) power... but apparently not with this kind of delivery! Comfort was surprisingly good, size was not daunting at all, even in the streets of Zurich. On the negative side, some pronounced wind noise at highway speed and, more importantly, brakes were underwhelming, very spongy pedal feel and performance seemed a bit weak, from the 2 semi-hard braking efforts I attempted. Not a very quantitative conclusion, and I know that the car is heavy, but still... So, my questions to the forum would be:
- Are you experiencing the same thing with your delivered cars' brakes?
- Aware of any upgrade available?
The tested car was a US model from July 2012, according to the store guy.
