Imagine an oceangoing liner that steers as lightly as a fiat uno and you have some idea of handling the Eldorado.
The sensation is impossible to believe until you try it.
At around 4,500 cc's the engine doesn't strain at anything and accelerates in a way that makes you feel it might be inclined to leave the ground.
It's a more practical car than you might expect.
The controls are all very simple and clear. Gimmickery of any kind seems to have been banned from this particular model.
The "trunk" is simply huge and would accomodate a pair of matching lawn mowers with room to spare.
The front seats can be adjusted in every concievable way and heated.
The back seats are surprisingly comfortable too, but lack windows that can be opened.
It seems to love every kind of road from autobahns to winding country lanes.
However it is extremelly wide and some narrower lanes would not be a realistic propostion.
Though understandably thirsty, it truly is a dream machine....
Although, of course, a NIGHTMARE to park.

Nothing in this opinion conveys the feeling that you have actually owned the vehicle so it fails to be a review from a consumer for a potential purchaser to read.

I'd always be afraid it would be stolen!

Interesting review, but I would love to hear more about how the car drives, how comfortable it is, what its fuel economy is, how much it costs to insure etc. All interesting, cos they are so rare.
