    Built by a factory in Monza, the Motore Centrale features an absurdly highly-tuned four-pot, including a big and bouncy Garrett turbo, new injectors, forged pistons and a bigger intercooler to produce a prodigious 230bhp and 243lb ft of torque. 0-62mph is quoted as 4.7 seconds - as quick as a BMW 1 Series Coupe, while top speed is 150mph.
    Huge 335mm front and 305mm rear brakes with four pistons, Bilstein suspension, goodies from Eiback and K&N and a kerbweight of just 1,050kg.

    Thanks. It was posted on top gear's facebook page.

    but the only flaw i see is the short wheel base..
    The car will tend to spin out on high speed corners when wet.. But that might be the fun factor with the tail kicking out every corner..:mischievous

    Its a serious Track day Monster trapped inside a cute 500!:devil

    Being a electronic a.k.a 'smart' LSD , it would be controlled madness i'd say!

    Anyways, as you rightly remarked, oversteer is always more fun than understeer or a perfect turn in. Lap times be damned :)
