This twin-turbocharged 3.3-litre V6 is coupled to an eight-speed automatic gearbox that exclusively powers the rear wheels. Officially it’ll crack 0-60mph in 4.7sec; we managed 4.8sec in our independent tests. It has plenty of power from low revs, and is a smooth operator too. It sits in the top 37% tax bracket like many of its competitors, although more of an issue is the Stinger’s thirst for petrol. It’s a real struggle to get anywhere near 30mpg.
