Here is a Real Time shot of of Turbo Sprint on boost!!

I did push this Sprint to red line in 5th Gear!!! These were amazing little cars! I Nearly cried the day I got rid of my last one, that is after buying two of them (New) GM should have sucked Suzuki's Ass to bring them back.

Bill.

File comment: This is what the Turbo Sprint/Firefly was capable of doing at 4300 RPM's
Note, there was no limiter either, I actually red lined the Sprint in 5th gear!!! (About 128 MPH!!)

I was clocked at over 200kph by a mustang i was racing in a mild MK1 turbo at about 15psi near red line in 5th. It was likely too fast for that chassis(stock, tired suspension), but quite a rush and a surprise to the mustang guy:)

My 93 Vert 5 speed will handler fine at 85, My 91 Vert Auto is a real handful at 75. Same tires, but the auto has ground effects and side skirts.
