Disappointed if this turns into truth. The "latest" craze with turbo charging is based on power and fuel efficiency. Look at the M3's real racing comp. Any turbos? Anyone? ALMS non prototype? Real GT series cars? Anyone?
I believe in win on Sunday sell on Monday. Use the engineering team you have BMW, direct inject the V8 and build a street version of your race car. If your paying 60~80k for a street version of the race cars you watch on TV, who gives a shit about 16~20mpg versus 23~27mpg.
Does Porsche care what the GT3 mileage really is? Corvette?
Sorry for ranting, but like I said, a little disappointed.
Drifting doesn't count as racing so don't bash me with the GT-R card.
