I had a 1990 Toronado Tro"feo. It's a far cry from this beast and you really can't compare them. Mine would go 124 MPH, and it was only a 6 cylinder.

What possessed Oldsmobile and Cadillac to build big front wheel drive cars with V8 engines, if it has a V8, it needs to be rear wheel drive.

@Chriss44 Ground breaking car, one of the first front wheel drive cars by a major U.S. manufacturer. Thanks for posting it.

@Anonymous One has to remember that with all pre-1972 U.S. made cars the horsepower is in SAE gross. Gross hp means without accessory drives, air cleaners, exhaust systems etc. Basically the manufacturer was free to take the bare engine to the engine dyno with any attachments (read tuned headers and no mufflers) that it wanted and publish the results for advertisement purposes. They were not policed in any way, so the horsepower figures before 1972 are not to be trusted.

I am surprised even with that weight, that with all that power its not that fast.
