    Thats pretty awesome...have to agree with TDI on the 2.00 TFSI engine if they do that its a no brainer when choosing a hot hatch! Nice!

    There are plenty of Renault 5 GT Turbos out there with that sort of power...

    Didn't they do something similar with the old G40 Polos and G60 Golf, something about a hybrid super/turbo charger, I think they called it a G-lader, all I remember is that the G-lader bit had to be rebuild every 40K or somthing ?

    Absolute pocket rocket for their time, My dad had one, which I broke .... I blew the g-lader through the side of the engine, not a nice sound at all. My dad was devistated, they only made 500 mk3s for the UK.

    G-lader system is only a supercharger as on G40 polos and G60 golfs.

    That Lancia S4 is just awesome though. Makes me wonder how Its taken over 20 years for anyone else to combine a supercharger with turbocharging to eliminate lag.

    Like the Lancia S4, a similar system on a 2 ltr should produce 300bhp +

    Maybe thats inline for the new S3 ???

    Brilliant idea, can't wait to see what the insurance companies do!
    1.4 also means lower car tax!

    I wouldn't mind one of these, have to see if they come on the car scheme at work & look into getting the missus one.

    G40/60 never had a turbo fitted.

    The 'G' refers to the fact it has a G-lader fitted. G-lader being the 'charger. The number afterwards denoted the size of the supercharger.

    Yes, yes I am a bit of a polo geek...:blink:
