Simply awesome.



From the article:
289 hp is serious for a 2.5L 4-cylinder, as eclipsing the 100hp/L ratio is always a mark of distinction for naturally aspirate engines, particularly from 30 years ago. USA-spec cars never got the 2.5L, and certainly none of the other modifications shown below. The engine is said to have covered only 900km since being installed in 2012. That could be the good news or bad news.

I'm a touch jealous, that really is some spec. I'd be concerned about the lifespan of the engine though.

You'd have to be wary of speed bumps in that !
