Well they said that a twin-turbo version of the V6 makes about 500hp. It will also depend on the weight and what not to compete with the LFA's 552hp, but still, not bad No matter what though, I'm 100% sure I'll still like the LFA better
Mike Hawk Jan 04, 2011
Pardon the typo... I guess I'm a bit partial with the Millen car since it's proven itself on the track. Perhaps I should wait for Lexus to put the LFA out for an official spin

@Mike- Yeah right this car has a long way to go before even getting close to giving the LF-A a run for it's money. The Lexus has a V10 in it pushing out over 500 horses and I doubt this company will put anything close to that in their car.
Mike Hawk Jan 04, 2011
If they can make it with a genesis motor, instead, I think it can give Lexus LFO a run for it's money

It's the engine used in the Tiburon GT

Whoops. Shoulda read the whole thing.

Probably is Hyundai. It's a Korean company I think?
Edward Jang Jan 03, 2011
Is this true that engine is hyundai's? I think the engine is US manufactures.

175hp is pretty weak :\
Description: As you climb upwards in the model range, it gets better. The Spirra S adds a turbocharger, resulting in 330 horsepower, and the Spirra T uses a larger turbo which ups the output to 400 horsepower. At ...

I just think that the engineering portion of this car, could have taken cues from the Millen Genesis

Whups sorry, pressed post, that's because Rhys is a professional driver/drifter and spent a lot of money on weight reduction, intake/exaust systems etc... But I do agree that this car does look very nice.
Jack Gramke Jan 05, 2011
@ mike, well that's because Rhys u

Rhys Millen's Genesis is much more powerful
Mike Hawk Jan 04, 2011
If only they used the 3.8 Lamda (Genesis coupe engine) Too bad. It does look nice, though.

This car was featured in the Gran Turismo series, though it was under the manufacturer named Proto Motors (Most likely just a name change). This prototype has actually been around for many years.
Andy Rogers Jan 03, 2011
Could this be the first Korean car to be actually interested in? And the first one I like? Need to know more.....
Vincent Butler Jan 05, 2011
Im wasted right now :0

I remember the first techtronic car that came out. Hella people were hating on it. Idk what I'm trying to saying.
Vincent Butler Jan 05, 2011
In the future Andy every new car will be run by computers. Its technology!!
Mike Hawk Jan 05, 2011
Whoa Danny. I like the GTR because I think it's a fun car, despite andy's criticism...which is why I tease him, cuz we respect each other's assertive opinions.
Danny Alvarado Jan 05, 2011
When it comes to having computers that help monitor and adjust the driver's "suggestions", yet it is considered to have what you call soul and passion. Arguing such an idea is absolute BS, with all due respect.
Danny Alvarado Jan 05, 2011
Have you (Andy) ever driven a GTR? The thing is an absolute monster! (I was given a ride) I understand what you mean about cars with soul and excitement, and the GTR car has both. It does it's job, and does it well. Lamborghinis are no different
Andy Rogers Jan 05, 2011
You brought it up Vincent, not me Mike brought up the GTR in general, but in an amusing way, even to me
Andy Rogers Jan 05, 2011
And the GTR does indeed have no soul. Do you even want to get me started? No excitement, no drama, drives itself, too geeky, computers dominate everything, doesn't stick out like it should (or as much as I thought it would), no passion, no soul
Andy Rogers Jan 05, 2011
I don't care if something looks like the GTR, as long as it's even slightly more exciting than the GTR
Vincent Butler Jan 04, 2011
Mike I'm sure he would say. That car has no soul
Mike Hawk Jan 04, 2011
Hey Andy. what if I told you this design makes me think of the GTR from the back?!? Hehe (I'm just bustin your balls, I couldnt resist)
Nick Benz Jan 03, 2011
It looks like nothing but a mclaren f1. Minus the back.
Andrew Shelley Jan 03, 2011
The middle is like a mustang the back is very nice like to see it more off a black tho.
Phillip Fitchew Jan 03, 2011
I think they could have done a little better with the design in the rear. It woulda been cool to use an actual diffuser, for instance, as opposed to those faux strakes.
Stephen Ishard Jan 03, 2011
Looks like a Asian farrari

From this angle that is
