If its the same spec as the charade GTturbo thats a nippy little motor. 3 cylinder turbos charge 993cc engine, giving out 100 bhp per litre (only got a litre lol) I drove one a while back and it was mucho fun :)

what do they run as standard and what size engine?
1ltr 3 cylinder turbo, think they are just over 100bhp :)

They are very quick for what they are :yes:

0-60mph is around 7 secs, and it does about 110-120mph :eek:

Aye, does look like something went on with the rear arch, even looks like paint reaction a little lol :p

Overall, should be fun for a project. I'm sourcing to find a screw'd up FTO to repair up :) or GT Four
