Agreed. The Stinger crowd is pretty hell bent on making it out to be the Thinking Man's BMW 340i. I can't blame them either.

There is something up with these 3.3 liter motors though with respect to consistent and/or advertised power, as noted on forums, YT, and mag tests. I just got the latest Car & Driver and they did a full test on the Genesis G70 which has the same 3.3 liter TT motor and tranny plus it weighs 150lbs than the Stinger GT. The rwd G70 managed a 13.3@106mph which was a whopping 5mph and .4 seconds off of the times of their rwd Stringer GT test car. 5mph suggests a huge difference in power and you would think the lighter G70 should be marginally quicker and faster.
