So we got a shiny new Lincoln MKZ
While I was playing with the Nissan Altima, I had to send my support-monkey younger brother to pick up this Lincoln MKZ. This is our third Ford-owned vehicle this month, after the Jaguar XKR and the Ford Five Hundred. I haven’t stepped downstairs to look at the car yet, but for some reason, he is impressed by this vehicle, citing good acceleration, great exclusivity, and even better handling.
He apparently tried to outrun a tailgating Aston Martin on a straight highway, reaching speeds of 195 kph before backing off and letting the rich dude pass him on the right side even faster. It would seem the MKZ is so stable that even speeds that high feel like the car is barely doing 140 kph.
Needless to say, keep an eye on your kids. And I probably could’ve taken that Aston driver on any curve. With my Jeep. Booyaa!
