An eight-speed, ZF-built automatic transmission sends power to a Torsen center differential, where it's divvied up front to rear depending upon available traction. Twenty-one-inch wheels are standard, shod with Pirelli P Zero tires for maximum grip and the shortest possible stopping distances.
As the video demonstrates, the luxury grand-tourer is surprisingly light on its feet, carrying an impressive amount of speed into corners. Yes, there’s some body roll to be seen, but we expect that from a car that’s attempting to blend equal parts velocity and luxury.
That’s four-time World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen handling the driving duties in the wet, and as near as we can tell that’s Derek Bell in the passenger seat. It’s hard enough for us to occupy the shotgun seat while someone else handles the driving duties, so we can’t imagine that Bell found it any easier.
