The Toronado was originally conceived by GM as a full-sized front wheel drive personal luxury car to complete with Ford's Thunderbird. The design team put the massive V8 on top of the driving wheels and marketing team produced all kinds of nonsense about how this was safer and better for handling. It is however a great car for a young family with a new born, plenty of room for the baby seat in the back and better than riding on a donkey.
The Toronado front drive setup may have some barge-like handling, but it does all for a completely flat floor, no transmission bump that was the enemy of middle children all over the USA back in the day.
