The crazy things that people do.

Don't let my drivers see this or they'll want me to upgrade ours.

There's gotta be some kind of de-tuning or fuel-cutback engine controls in the lower gears, like on the MazdaSpeed3. If not, with 357 HP in a FWD car this size, it will probably torque-steer right off the pavement....I don't see anything in the specs that says it was converted to RWD or AWD.

I was expecting to see the engine mounted in the rear seat area.
