    I'd bet $1 that this is a show car only, never to see the light of production. FWIW, Spec's can be pretty much made up for any one-off. I was just in an F40LM that made 700+ HP from a much smaller engine and I've also taken a ride in a 1013HP Testarossa.

    Even if the do produce it, do you really want to give $450K to a friggin' Dodge dealer?
