I hope this isn't a repost

THIS CAR ROCKS!!!

But quite unpractcle... :crazy:

Best quote in the article :shock:
It had to be road legal and based on a car that you could drive to work and then take for a track day on the weekend, and that's what we have done," explains the company's sales manager Jenny McKeown.

Question: What do you get if you take a Mitsubishi Evo VI and spend a year and a half tuning it with a total cost of around $186,000? Answer: RC Developments' 930hp Evo, a car that was built to kick ass. The UK tuning business is ultra competitive and takes no prisoners. Last year, Norris Designs unveiled a Mitsubishi Evo that produced more than 700 hp, and that threw down the gauntlet. RC Developments' response to that challenge was to move up to the next level by releasing an Evo VI into the unsuspecting community with a proven 930 ponies (and 673 lb-ft of torque). To put that power figure into some kind of perspective, a Ferrari Enzo has only 660 hp, and the Mercedes McLaren SLR is positively puny with a pathetic 617 hp.
"We designed the biggest possible stroker kit for a 2.0L engine, which is actually 2,378cc, the biggest that is physically possible without making the cylinder walls too thin. We designed it and sent the block and everything off to Crower in America to produce."
In the future it wants to run the car on methanol and hit 1,200 hp, which will surely make it the most powerful in the world, despite not having the advantage of nitrous oxide. However, that will mean spending a further $1,860 on a pair of pumps, another fuel rail, and more mods to the plenum chamber. "You need to supply 110 percent more fuel than we are already running to get the same air/fuel ratio
So far the car has had only one outing on the dragstrip, when it was throwing down 600 hp, and it ran the quarter-mile in 10.9 seconds. The car is currently geared for more than 200 mph and is expected to run in the high 9s on its next outing.

The cams pull it along at slower speeds, but it all breaks loose at about 5,000 rpm when the turbo kicks in [a fact confirmed by the vertical climb on the dyno grap] and it revs to 8,900 rpm.
