Second, errr Kremer built quite a few cars, yes. The brothers were also great salesmen. Please, just because it is in writing, don't believe everything stated. For a start... the secs on that car.. WOW.. great, isn't it? Now.. .look again.. They changed a lot of things and make some nice performance claims. I will ask one simple question and you can have a ball trying to figure out how it would be possible... Look at the claimed 0-60 and TOP speed.. and note how they increased acceleration by swapping R&P. So, what is WRONG with these figures, unless they built a "miracle" engine?

Keep the boost up.

It does seem Manfred wanted it both ways. The car might do 192 if it had the stock 3.7 and still had the 480 FWHP as tested w/open exhaust. With the 4.10 gears ( as it left Kremer ) around 160MPH is more realistic, with the emissions and exhaust system installed to pass, it is probably more like 350 RWHP @ a safe 1.0 bar, by my estimate, when I compare its grunt with another I just had on the dyno. However I have had it around Road America at 1.3 bar with 110 gas which makes it noticabily quicker. It is pretty quick thru the gears for a street build in 1984 trim with the lighter body and shorter final drive.
