...do not under any circumstances try to race it!

I saw this unassuming beast at Santa Pod today - and it was running low 11's all day long - I have never seen anthing like it - sure there are faster cars, but it is truly amazing to watch a seemingly normal car make tuned Supras etc look slow.

It has just 580bhp by the way [:O][:O][:O]

ahh the Fensport :) I had a lot of fun in that thing when i was up at Fensport with my old MR2. Although they went a little sheepish about them blowing the engine up [^]

That also have 4wd drive train from a GT4, the 3S-GTE engine to match and more TRD parts than you can shake a 580bhp stick at! A beauty [:D]

First picture looks like a Civic TYPE-R ( which i _really_ like )

From the second picture it looks like an A3!

I wonder how much one of those goes for :)

LOL, tuned by CRD or so they'd have you think!!

They import all there big power cars already tuned. They also had an impreza there that ran a 11.2s 1/4

I was in an evo last week that ran an 11.7 (at 480bhp will soon be 600) and it was blindingly fast!

Very subtle, seemingly very well executed. You have to admire it if you're into cars at all. Hell, even I think the fast and furious stickers under the bonnet are well done and normally I can't stand those things. If I could get my hands on one of those I'd give up my day job and concentrate on earning a living from the 2 a.m. illegal street racing.

Have you read the spec sheet on this beast? It really does read like something from the Fast and the Furious. Wonder how much all that lot cost relative to the initial car. Gary (MRK IV) this looks like your kind of car (except it's not German)[^]

the japs are all a crazy bunch. saw a 1000bhp + skyline, think the cost was about $500k total.

Btw - have you seen the rolling road graphs? Usually the bhp + torque starts to tail off after a certain RPM, however this car seems to just pull and pull up to 8k!
