The Big Red Machine


A AWD beast boasting 320hp @ lo-boost of 0.9bar & 440hp @ hi-boost of 1.5bar!! I had the chance take this bad-ass ride out for a spin & terrorize the streets in Samajaya area earlier today... when the full tidal wave of boost hits you, be afraid, be very afraid... that is when all hell breaks loose ~ the G-force of sheer savage acceleration just throws you back & pins you down unto your seat as the car seems to lunge forward at warp speed... This can be SO EXHILARATINGLY ADDICTIVE, i think it is an experience every petrol-heads should try before they die.


Packed to the brim with goodies from the brand that most of us petrol-heads worship, HKS. This could as well be the HKS demo car. All i know is it's running an E4 bottom with E6.5 head + HKS Hi-cam setup *no wonder why i kept stalling the car when i slow down to a halt at junctions & traffic lights* + upgraded big turbo kit *i suspect, coz i really don't think the stock blower will cope with anything over 400hp at max boost* With the tremendous amount of traction from the AWD layout, i reckon this beast is capable of a sub-5 second century sprint without breaking a sweat.

For that addictive signature turbo kap-pish sound effect at every gear change...

music to my ears...

Spartan interior with a plethora of functional goodies to drool over...

ultra rare...

i had to cope with information overload checking the engine diagnostics while handling this machine...

now where's that boost meter?

Really expensive performance focused wheels ~ that's RM18K just for the wheels, tires not included. 4-pot big brakes peeking behind the wheels... that does not look too standard issue to me.

To describe the experience, the big red machine sounded just like this one...
