    I found this on another board, suprised it never was posted here before. This car claims 1278 hp and 923.3 lb/ft of torque at 1.2 bar of boost... On stock internals. Crazy huh?

    I'm almost positive it's from Japan as I've seen it on several Japanese car websites. I haven't been able to find any more info on it since I first saw it months ago, but it sure does look nice other than the decals. If it definitely is Japanese then the power claims probably aren't too far off as most tuners there usually don't half ass anything.

    It would be truly impressive if they "Shoehorned" that motor into a Vega. Now, I'm just shrugging and saying, "Ehhh, so?"

    Know why Ferraris aren't bastardized like that??? Respect.

    Darth, there are plenty of twin turboed Ferrari's out there. Depending on the owner they get bastardized like the rest.

    I have an article on it from Genroq magazine. The car is capable of more power, but their dyno could only handle 1200rwhp so they had to shut it down early.

    I think it looks great
    looks awfully similar to the set up in 348tt's engine bay; except it makes 850 more rwhp

    Good morning Allan! I'll agree with you in the sense that Lambos are generally better suited to "Plow through" obstacles that Ferraris dare not even try.

    Yes, i agree. Lambos are better at plowing through the air than Ferraris.

    I bet the drag coefficient quoted for the Diablo is without wing, and also with out the Sv scoops.

    Murci difference must be with the bat wings up or down.

    Just got an email again from the guy who is getting all the info on this car, and he said it can spin the rear tires in 4th gear! Holy Crap!

    Those numbers make the c5 and c6 vette look pretty impressive at .29 and .28.
