BTW, allow me to make two recommendations.

2012 Jaguar XFR.
510 HP and 461 lb-ft. 4.4s to 60, 12.7 at 114mph quarter mile stock.
Same engine on cars on the Range Rovers and Jaguar F-Type, and you can get it to 550 HP+ easily.

2012 Audi S4 or S5 depending on whether you want a coupe or sedan.
333 HP, 325 lb-ft. 4.4s to 60 and 13.0 at 105mph quarter mile. You can get to 420 HP with just a tune, and keep up with C63s.

Louder for the Audi RS enthusiasts for back. Even Buhari fuel prices no fit hold us down. Seriously you should take King406’s offer and come drive in Abuja, worthy opponents everywhere (although 90% of them no fit drive anything other than straightline)!

The Jag na same engine wey dey Range Rovers. Na suspension parts go be wahala.

The Audi...probably similar suspension setup to the regular A4, which I don't expect to be that rare in Abj. The engine was used in the A6 too.

HeavenlyBang:
Almost two years ago, I bought my first pseudo-performance vehicle.

An 07 Infiniti G35 with 306 HP. Great car, and powerful enough to punch way above its weight class. My user experience probably a few other people I know to get the same car.

Anyway, two years after, I'd gotten a bit more mature and just wanted something more comfortable. Of course, I wouldn't tolerate going to a slower car, so it also had to be powerful enough.

Shortlisted:

- Cadillac ATS
- Dodge Charger RT
- Audi A6
- Acura TL SH-AWD

Slowly started canceling them off the list.

The ATS would've been difficult to own due to availability of parts. The only cars it shares most parts with are the 2014+ CTS and 2016+ Camaro, none of which are popular in the country.

The Charger was similar. I hit up Eddee and realized that I wouldn't be able to get parts easily in my side of the country.

The A6 would've been perfect but Audi's tend to be designed by brainless junkies.

The TL just didn't have the grunt I needed.

The last options? An Infiniti M56 or a W212 E550.

I went with the latter. Albeit, in coupe form. The sedan E550 is probably the better car but was exclusively offered with airmatic. The coupe used regular electronic adaptive shocks instead. That was the one for me.

Congrats Bro.

Trust me when I say you made the right choice for your ride.

I have been reading on the 278 and it's the best based in your demands.

More grace to you and may your coast become larger.

Your next car should be a porsche or a lambo.

We're waiting grin

Oh, and BTW, I actually get better fuel economy on this 5.5L V8 than I do on the 3.5L V6 G35.

It's ridiculous.

Congratulations.

Mercedes seems to have better mpg than many car brands. I guess some cylinders in bigger engines shut off when low power is required, (eg hold up, etc).

Some Mercedes vehicles seem to have better mpg than popular brands.

One has an average speed of 12mph the other 19mph. Its normal for the one doing 19mph to have a better mpg. These vehicles burn more fuel, the slower they move.

Oh, true. Honestly, I think it's possible that the trip computer just wasn't very accurate again. Because my average speed is probably more in the 20mph range, not 12mph.
