Quite a bit less than it's 'competition', even though it doesn't really compete in line with the RS6, E55, and M5, it's certainly close, and $20k less...too bad it's a Ford.

I've driven it and I can only say how dissapointed I was with it. It doesn't feel quick (maybe a jag thing).. and the supercharger whines away.. it drives you crazy after a while. And could you live with the looks??? :Ill:
I also think that the price is a false economy because it will depreciate more quickly than the other cars in your list.

It is slower than my A6 2.7TQ MTM automatic...need I say more?
It's more in competition with the S6 really.

Please let me quote Car Dec. 2002.
"The S-Type will slide and smoke and behave like a hooligan...
but it never feels made for it"
"Doesn't feel 400 bhp fast. Wooden and imprecise. (on the track)"
