I love the "Accent colored fender vents (except Silver Pearl exterior color)" and the TURBO bage on the back. Very very nice accent changes.

Are these outlet vents functional now? Or is the inlet air just pushed down below the body?

I noticed that the base sky I looked at the "fake vent" insert is not a part of the rest of the fender. Hopefully that was done so that this can be a functional vent on the Redline

As far as I know they're still not functional. Pricing will be released at a later date.

i don't like how they have all this chrome all over, but then they put in black head lights. just doesn't match to me. it should be all chrome or no chrome, not half chrome half black.

i'll just have to do a couple modifications if i get one.

looks beautiful otherwise!

"virtually no lag". that sounds nice! i can't wait to hear final pricing and speeds like 0 - 60.

The 0-60 and 1/4 mile information is in one of my huge quote blocks near the bottom of the text.

Gas Milage

I could have sworn I read in a couple places that the gas milage is expected to be nearly the same as the base model. it is not the same engine plus a turbo charger. Of course it may depend a lot on how you drive. if you are constantly pushing it to high RPMs and revving it up to dump the clutch for example you will get less gas milage. Or if you have a habit of leaving it running for 5 minutes to warm up in the colder months before driving.
