Without question, the 2010 Ford Taurus SHO marks the return of the authoritative sports sedan that quickly rose to power in the late 80's but fell on hard times in recent years. Ford certainly got it right again by staying true to its Taurus SHO sport sedan heritage while delivering several new amenities and technologies that provide a dynamic ride and impressive power, coupled with fuel economy numbers that consumers desire. It's not only the turbocharged eco-conscious V-6 that makes the Taurus SHO a standout, it's the attention to detail in the interior. Ford's design team did an excellent job in engineering a classy interior that has the right amount of sportiness, combined with the creature comforts you'd expect to see in a higher priced sedan.
NADAguides.com selected the 2010 Ford Taurus SHO as its February Car of the Month because the Taurus is the most refined, well-crafted, and technologically advanced, and yes, fun-to-drive Taurus of all time. Powered by a 3.5-liter Super High Output (SHO) EcoBoost™ twin turbocharged V-6 engine, the performance version of Ford's all-new flagship delivers V-8 levels of power without compromising on V-6 fuel economy. After testing several other contenders in the competitive class, the Ford Taurus SHO is the winner hands down, based on its authentic "sleeper" sports sedan performance, universal appeal, and premium luxury accompaniments.

"So, I thought the RX-8s were supposed to be fast". Then at the end of you ficticious story you contradict yourself. You say "Was he sandbagging it or are the RX-8s as underpowered as I have always thought they were". Interesting you say two opposite statements in one post. If you look at the numbers 232 horsepower, and 159 ft/lbs of torque is not bad out of a 1.3 liter engine. I dont know of any car that can do that without a turbo. Honda can get similar horsepower and torque but only by using a much larger engine ( a 2.2 liter ). The rx8 is not fast, but it cant get to 60 in less than 6 seconds. But if you ever drove one its about more than speed. You have a perfect 50/50...
