Replying to Topic 'MPS officially to be produced for Europe'

No word. My guess would be an introduction at the NAIAS in January.

How does this car differ from the v6? AWD I know, but any other things? It's just a 4 cylinder with turbos right? Any HP ratings?

2.3 liter turbocharged I-4 with approximate output of 280bhp and 280 lb ft. It has AWD with ATTS active electronically controlled center differential. It has a 6 speed manual transmission.

It's 360 Nm, which equals 265 lb. ft. of torque. Conversions are a bitch aren't they? What's really beautiful is that it reaches peak torque at 3500RPM. Hopefully the torque curve stays flat after that. If so, then this car will pull HARD.
Here's where I got my info:

ATTS.. .Is that something similar to the ATESSA-ETS or what's it's name on the Nissan Skyline GT-R?

Yes.
ATTS=Active Torque Transfer System.
DCCD(Subaru)=Driver Controlled something or other.
ACD(Mitsubishi)=Active Center Differential.

These, along with Nissan's ATESSA system are all sun and planet gear systems which allow manual torque splits between the front and rear wheels.

I don't know. It hasn't been available for awhile. I remember trying to look at it a couple of months ago and couldn't get it then either.
