It's mainly the 2 L auto engines which aren't really all that much.

Yep so this is why the 2.5 L engines don't cut it. The 2.0 L engines only barely make it under (some actually don't so you have to be careful there).

P platers don't belong anywhere near a proper performance car. There I said it. Even 134kw/tonne is heaps.

I have mates on P plates who have driven a non-roadworthy 290 kW/tonne vehicle ;)

I saw some girl P plater driving a BMW M3 new model....
290 kW/tonne is like a Viper SRT10.

This thing isn't actually road legal though so it's never been on roads before, neither will it ever be there.

It must be something pumping out 400-500rwhp then, my guess is a highly modded jap car or something?
