AUTOEXPRESS is the equivalent of the SUN newspaper - utter trash. (apologies to the 5million SUN readers)Anyone seen autoexpress this week?
Speaks of the worlds first 'turbocharged supercharger' in a 1.4 168bhp Golf GT.
240Nm of torque and 0-60 in 8 seconds. Also has the GTI style front grille.
170 bhp in a 1.4 engine= less weight.That thing will probably rev likeI dont see the logic, would be fun mind... if i had one, there would be a 1.4 badge on the back 
I know the car you mean - ffoc??There are a couple of Focus's running around
with superchargers and turbos on them, the advantage is that with a
supercharger the power is instant but with turbos there is some lag. By
combining the two the supercharger makes up for the turbos shortfall.
Having said that I think the Focus just runs the turbo now and I think
she still has the NOS on it.
But the rx8 they classify it as a 2.6l on the insurance if you ever try and get a quote.I cant see how this engine is going to line up
with the rest of the range. Reading the blurb, its going to have near
GTI power, but with near TDI fuel economy, correct? Then surely this is
going to take sales away from other cars in the range. Maybe we will
see some models being dropped? As for the insurance, as soon as the
companys realise the power it will still go into group 15 or so despite
the low capacity. Look at the RX8, its only a 1.4 or something due to
the rotary engine.
