    And so say all of us.

    I thought the RS500 wasn’t front-wheel drive. I thought it had a four-wheel system.

    I think you mean ‘sought after’, not ‘sort after’.

      Thanks for making the change Brett. Who’d have thought a Gen Y’er would be so particular about grammar? ;)

    how but if they make a car in limited editions like this they put you through a driving course or something so you don’t end up crashing one of these babies

    Don’t know if Ford and Mazda still share much tech but it would be great if Mazda could put this revo knuckle front suspension under the MPS.

    It would sort out the torque steer that journo’s keep going on about.

    Not bad but I just saw on the net Skoda Fabia Coupe with 2 liter TFSI engine 500Hp @ 7.800 rpm and 600Nm @ 3.700 rpm and the 2.7 sec time for the 0 to 100km/h. This car is out since May 2007.

      I also just saw a 1.5 litre 4-cylinder turbo from 1985 that produced 1500hp. But it’s in an F1 car. And has absolutely no relevance to this article at all. Just like the (one-off rally) Skoda that you mention. So what’s your point?

      Taken from the EVO Mag.Sept ’10

      “The end result is a Fiesta capable of putting out up to 838bhp(625kw) – though it has been detuned to 641bhp(484kw) in order to give Block the torque band he needs to keep the car under control – and 660 lb ft(894nm) of torque from 4000 rpm. It takes just two seconds to rocket Block from 0-60 mph.”

      The above describes Ken’s Block Rally FORD FIESTA he has driven in his Gymkana 3 stunt extravganza.
      Now …somebody mentioned about some girly Skoda rally car ???

      • ABMPSV

        Your Skoda girly car this year beat Ford Fiesta factory team from 8 times from 9 races. Skoda finished 5 times 1,2 and 3 times 1,2,3!!

        • Qikturbo

          Skoda has no history or credentials in motorsports.It is a big nothing in racing as it is with it’s road going vehicles.

          • ABMPSV

            Skoda started rally in 1970′s and with John Haugland won 14 races. Source: Rallybase.nl Skoda is big something. Check car sale around the worl not just here. Read JD Power reports.

            You saying Audi, VW is nothing. They use the same engine and chassis as Skoda!!
