That's 40 horses escaped though, which is a fair few.

The manuals can make it to 186 (300Kph) unrestricted. Not sure what the auto would do since I don't know anyone who has tried it!

I'd like to put mine on the rollers too since it's only got 13K on the engine. Its been enthusiastically run in so it ought to be making its full factory output

Could be due to the auto box, maybe they under-estimated losses from the trans?
