So again, to be clear, I am not saying the car is speced at 416 hp and is hiding a full 470 hp. CarTest is a simulation tool and can not predict every car right on the money. It does however do a very accurate job on many cars. My point is simply this. One or more pieces of the following puzzle are completely and largely inconsistent:
1. The reported performance figures from the car mag in my opening post.
2. The weight figure for the car.
3. The reported hp and tq figures for the car.
