The G8 is composed and responsive; the grip is extremely sticky for a large sedan. The balance between ride smoothness and performance is just about perfect. The skidpad numbers are around 86gs - It does what you tell it to do without hesitation.
It is aggressive and sleek with a powerful stance. The bodylines are very attractive, the rake angle from rear to front is much more extreme than other sedans. The 19 inch wheels are flattering and not overbearing. The car often receives much kudos.
Starlingly fast for a large sedan. Very smooth power delivery, lots of torgue throughout the powerband. The torque and power continue at highway speeds. Has 2 shift modes + manu-matic shifting. Power display creates much dismay for foreign sedan owners.
Stops rapidly and without fanfare. Braking numbers have tested well. Takes a lot of extreme stops to create fades. Brakes are large, brembo-style stompers.
