Maybe I misread it.  It may have been a VIII.  0-60 in well under 4 seconds, 175mph top speed?

If you are referring to the episode where the evo races the lambo, that was an evo fr400.

Go to youtube and watch what a real evo (1985) does to the current one. Type "lancia delta s4" in the search box.

I've read that the UK spec EVO has like 400hp stock -- we don't get exactly the same car in the US.

"its fq400, btw" your right. Im not an evo guy by any means, I just remembered seeing the video. I guess I saw the MR, and got confused. Here's the youtube link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uExWe1lm0BM And I'm guessing the one that ponyboy was referring to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbjxpwN1Rcw
