Well he was also in charge of the G8 coming here, the Regal GS coming here, and bringing the Camaro back. So he had to something for the bean counters.

Ha, better than his commentary on CNBC the other morning where he tried to justify the existence o the VOLT by saying "natural gas cars do not have the range". This project gave him street cred, his Volt lost it though.

I've always loved this car, but as road going race cars go, the clk gtr still takes the cake for me.

Jesse Davidson Apr 18, 2012

According to the above article, the straight six stuck with BMW's engineering value. :)
Jason Brower Apr 18, 2012
Honestly the v10 would have made it more attractive as a super car. But I suppose the engineers were more focused on weight or something of that nature.
