Excellent power... Gas mileage, it all depends on the condition of the engine, maintenance and also on what kind of driving it is used... Highway on a 750 with a engine and a good maintenance record. is OK for being a V12, however... it drops significantly in the city.

I get right at 14.5 in the city and 20.5 to 21.0 at 75 MPH highway.

That's about right....

I didn't post the numbers because people usually get scared of them, but the power easily overcomes the gas mileage... I just love it when the car responds as soon as you just touch the pedal... My kids also love it when I step a little on it... They even encourage me on doing more and going faster... It is a car that ideal cruising speed would be around 90 MPH... And when you step on it then, it still responds even better than at lower speed... You can only confirm this by having one, or at least, driving one.

Now dont' get me wrong... I am not into drag or anything in that matter, my car is stock, No Dinan or anything like it... I drive really safely, because I did have many scary moments when I was a kid, now I am much more mature due to previous experiences and age, I guess... and also I have a family which I love to death...
