Not happy

Pros: luxurious, fast, great response Cons: the passenger seat does not go up and down. You are practically sitting in the floor. There is no leg room in the back. Annoying rattling noise in the dash. Hard to make a right turn because you can't really see the curb. Just not happy with it.

fantastic car!!!

The car is super comfortable and very spacious, took it down to South Carolina and back and it was a dream no issues… except for the fact I got a speeding ticket. It looks like a bat mobile which is why I purchased it in the first place. absolutely stunning vehicle!! I upgraded the vehicle a lot too! I got the windows tinted and I blacked out the chrome!


  • Power: I love to go fast and when you put this car in sport mode it literally puts you back in your seat!!
  • Seat Comfort: the seat form to your body so amazing!
  • Ride and Handling: smooth and super easy to control.


  • Value: honestly there isn’t a single con to the car except the fact that I couldn’t and purchase my dream truck as well!
