|I'll tell you this. Nobody bought the old one because it was a burner.|
In fact, most people who test drove the LT and HT really couldn't tell the difference. They weren't hot rodders to begin with. They wanted a car to go cruising in and the C70 satisfies that.

|You don't have to buy one. If I only cared about acceleration, I would have bought a Mustang. The C70 is peppy and fun to drive, more so in manual than automatic, but it's not a mustang, and people who buy one don't expect it to be. I'm surprised at the number of people who complain about it, yet apparently have no real interest in one, except to denigrate it.|
Oh, and only in the US is it sold with one engine choice. In Europe, there are several options including diesel, all are less powerful than the T5, for tax and gas consumption reasons.
