^ This. And furthermore, if the reviewers were to assume that the test car is representative of the end consumer product (which they should be able to assume), then they could report "All Lincoln MKZs come with Pilot Super Sports", which would be as factually incorrect as the handling numbers that are a result of using said tires.
