Yes it is turbo. The power to weight ratio is key. The car has been driven to a 12.7 second 1/4 mile time.

Its fun for sure but sometimes scary due to being so small.

The best part about those wheels were they were super cheap $99 each, have quite a wider offset than factory specs, and are around 13lbs each.

Just thought I'd share my toy. Much cheaper than a Ferrari but not as good looking.

an MX5 isn't THAT small
try driving a Spitfire
now that is low & small
it's possible to touch the ground while driving around in that one and if you pull up next to a truck, THEN you feel really small

It handles like a go-kart. Its plenty small and low to the ground. Maybe not compared to a Spitfire but a Spitfire isn't making 250 wheel horsepower either. I can't get a jack under it so its fairly low.

looks like fun. There is a company in Australia which fits supercharged V8's to these cars. I think the V8 is sourced from lexus. They are very quick
