If the C6 really is going to build up a in this highly competitive sector it needs to drive “Early adopters” have a of two V6 engines, later on there be cheaper four-cylinder models. Of the 3.0 petrol unit is the poorer You’d honestly be forgiven for the sound of this 3.0-litre for a it’s just not refined for this class of car.

The 2.7, however (the twin-turbo diesel as in Jaguar’s and XJ) is a peach of a unit. With it is only marginally less than the petrol C6 and it has bucket-loads torque. The result is a 0-60mph half a second quicker at 8.9 and 32mpg instead of 25mpg

The reality, however, is these are not the of a sporting car. Even if were, the poor steering push the C6 back into the Grand Tourer class than the area where buyers seem to be looking. The is simply that the steering is far too light. Easy for parking and work, sure, but with any feel of the road for serious country work.
