    sounds like they are aiming up market to the golf gti with the volvo engine but no LSD etc. a smoother ride with lots of power on tap.

    But the sounds of a RS Mk2 would be interesteing /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif 300Bhp - as long as its put through all 4 wheels.

    Either way - will push the next S3 and R32 along to be more impressive cars - hopefully /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    thats what i thought snoop a 2.5 turbo only pushing 217 bhp gotta leave loads of scope for some serious power.

    By all accounts, in shake down tests at the 'ring' it's already lapping 3 secs quicker than the focus RS. Impressive!
