Read the last line of my post again.
And let me tell you the reason behind my opinion sir, 9.8 people out of every 10 bought the 7th gen as a family sedan and not as a car for hot rodding.
You can hot rod in the 8th gen as well but accompanied with comfort and ample road grip. 7th gen was noisy, less grippy and smaller.
Well, a F1 car's cockpit delivers all the noise you want while the 760Li, M5 or the S500 delivers all the comfort (still coupled with actually more than the power needed) but guess what, F1 car can't be used for daily driving.
If you mean a daily workhorse + power thats the 8th gen, significantly better sir.
But its MY opinion. Everyone is open to agree/disagree. Me no fan boy of anything except what satisfies me at its best.
