I like how there is a new version of perceived limitations with this car every now and then..
So far i recall in no particular order:
1. No DCT since DCT cannot handle additional tq from engine.. so we were supposed to get 8sp Auto
2. Crankshaft design could not handle power from engine so car was detuned.. no evidence of this
3. Car is not tunable since car is already running max boost and any changes will result in engine failure.. see PP performance for 620hp and 750nm with just tune
You get the idea and i could go on.. No one really knows until G-Power or some other tuner gets insane figures from this car.. I see 620hp and 750nm as a start. Nothing is untunable..just how much money you are willing to spend.
"Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them bleed deeper in something that's larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers -- by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him, and make the running the man did live forever" (J.Hellwig)
