The suspension doing everything it should on those open roads.
Shame that English dialogue isn't available, as the presenter has plenty to say, most of it complimentary, by the sound of it.

Loved the shots of those open, rural roads. Lots of the same down here, so good fun will all the available horses! :)
Turn on subtitles with auto translate set to English. A few odd translations, but just about good enough.

He likes the car a lot, the overall refinement...even though, apparently the owner reported the suspension is riding harder than it should be.
He liked the DIRAVI for it's ability to completely isolate the driver from transmitted road shocks.

He admitted to not being able to disclose his speed on those back roads...and that the car still accelerates rapidly at speeds over 120kmh...😉

Shame that he gave us such a brief view under the bonnet - 24 valve PRV isn't it? Leather all seemed to be in superb condition, and is that real wood in the centre console?

He certainly seemed very impressed by the Diravi steering (even heard him use the word :) ), and like all reviewers got a kick out of making the suspension go up and down!

However, like all reviewers, it appears that he does not understand one of the great strengths of hydraulic suspension - self levelling!! Surely viewers would find it interesting to see a demonstration - eg. if he was to sit in the open boot with the engine running,

Thanks for the subtitle tip, Will.
The filming is so good, it deserves some over-dubbing.

Another Russian video.

More than a few issues need attention, here.

Lovely . . . You could float a convoy of XMs on that Italian accent!
A video make with real affection.
