    idk about the current v, but i do know for a fact that bose took the c5 (vett) platform to their facility and designed that system in house to maximize sound quality for that exact vehicle.

    the V2 isn't meant to compete with an S class.

    it's meant to be the best performance sedan in the world for $30 grand off, and it was for a time. if you wanted a no-compromise luxury super sedan, there are better (more expensive) options.


    expect class leading luxury *and* performance from the ats and alpha base cts, and expect it to cost more. The v2 was essentially still a warmup for the main event.
