400Nm?! That's a fair chunk of torque for a relatively small car! Like it.

 

Yeah...it's rather quick :) And I heard last week at PugFest that there are hardly any in the UK. Plenty of GT-lines, but no real GTs.

 

It is quicker than my mates 205 CTi Mi16 on Jenveys....  :ph34r:

Has the engine been remapped or is it 400Nm out the factory?

They are 295lb ft standard, it seems everyone is getting more torque nowadays, puts it in line with the bmws old twin turbo 2.0. Can't help thinking unless it's been developed with someone else it'll destroy gearboxes. Unless it's an auto only... Even my polo musters 236lb ft somehow!

It's an EAT6 auto gearbox. This 181bhp 2.0 HDi engine is not available with a manual gearbox. But it shifts great in sport-mode. Just as quick as my colleagues DSG VW Golf.

They just shouldn't have done the GT-lines. I now see 130bhp 1.2 3-cylinder ones which look the same as mine :( I see the difference (different air intakes, different indicators and smaller wheels) but 90% of the people just don't.

They are a great car, both on the road and track, engine is epic, handling is really good, steering feel is non existent!
