With a thrilling roar, the engine consistently unleashes its performance right up to the high-speed regions, delivering an adrenalin-laden driving experience both on the road and on the racetrack. Its impressive direct responsiveness and high torque ensure that the slightest pressure on the accelerator generates a vehement thrust and pulling force, even starting at idling speed.
