Interesting. Is this really the same car that was on the show? The car in the advert is white, while the car in the show become red after transformation.

Are the hood scoops functional or just aesthetic trim?

Garage
I thought this was very interesting/neat. At one point, though, upon looking at the Ghibli one of the two casually uttered that he thought it would be challenging to get it up to 170 mph, let along 200 mph. But doesn't the stock SQ4 reach 176 mph? I'm guessing they were given the base model (the V6 shield in the engine bay was grey, and I think the S series is blue), which is advertised as reaching 166 mph. This got me to wondering - is the difference between the base and the S owing to software or tuning alone, or are the turbos also different, or some other variables? The engine specs themselves look to be the same (same layout, displacement, bore and stroke figures).

It was posted somewhere....but its more than just the tune. I think there are some mechanical differences including turbos.
