Powered by a 6.6 L (400 cu in) turbocharged V8 engine, the Faction is a fun car to drive - with a high-torque engine up front, combined with the RWD drivetrain, drifts are easy yet controllable. The car also has great brakes due to ABS. The turbo seems to have muted the sound of the V8 quite a bit though, but it still makes a nice smooth sound. The top speed is 170 mph (274 km/h). It is easy to control and easy to powerslide. Overall, the car has a great balance between sharpness and stability.

ABS is standard, giving the brakes good stopping ability. Top speed is 170 mph (274 km/h), and is reached fairly quickly due to its high acceleration.
