I was only two when the 1984 came out but that is no excuse for not remembering how technologically advanced. these cars were. Read this old school Car and Driver review
Admittedly the acceleration pales in comparison to todays cars but it must have been really quick for 1984 0-60mph in under 7 Seconds 1/4 in 15.2 but the grip was .90g on the skidbad besting the porsch 928 and other ferraris and this skid pad test Car and Driver says is the highest grip of an regular production car they had tested. A top speed of 140mph is nothing to sneeze at. Need I remind you this is 1984!?!
This digital dash needs to happen more today.
If I remember right these cars mostly the motors electronics and stuff are unrelable pieces of crap.
