It's running the direct-injection 260HP ecotec 2.0L lnf engine. 9.2:1 compression ratio @ 20 psi! Better power output per liter than the 335i.

It should, considering that little 20psi bit you just mentioned.

Erm, that was a joke actually. As far as I know there is only one car ever made with the hand brake in that position. Major kudos to the first person who guesses what it is.

Perfect. So if I directed an American version of Top Gear...I would have three guys go test out three turbo FWD cars in a series of tests:

1) Representing USA: Chevy Cobalt SS
2) Representing Europe: VW GTI
3) Representing Japan: Mazdaspeed 3

That would be a fun episode.

Not on the track, I guarantee the Turbo Cobalt would run away from the GTI on the track, I'd still rather own the GTI though.
