Awd is not the end all be all for performance cars. if the driver still drives like shit it cant save him at all. plus they have a tendency to fall on their face after 120 unless they are pushing 400+ hp. you ahve to remember the weight and parasitic losses from an awd system. plus most have understeer at higher speeds, just like a fwd.

that said i want that car. end of story.
Im your heavy metal queen
