I presume it's not a standard output?? What's it had done to it to achieve those figures. They are absolute monsters.

That supercharger really does make it sound like the car is heading towards warp.

You could get some big chrome letters from halfords and write USS ENTERPRISE along the bonnet.

Drove a standard one on a Vauxhall track day at brands a couple of years ago. It was a beast so I can only imagen what a +600bhp version is like. I should not like it but for some reason I do including the red side stripes. What a machine.....

How many gallons to the mile do you get?
