    Multi million dollar hypercar, yes, but still pretty cool. I think these crazy Danes may have figured out how to efficiently use supercharging and turbocharging (albeit with likely ridiculously poor fuel economy). I really like the car, especially the edgy styling.

    Eh, I'm happy with my hair dryer. 321 ft-lbs of torque and 24-25mpg works for me...plus I've come to really enjoy the surge of turbocharged cars.

    Again, twin-charging has been around for quite a while.

    I've heard of supercharging the WRX and STI's before, anyone actually have any experience in the kind of power delivery they facilitate? Granted I would just get a 16G myself.

    I'm aware it's old news but I just thought the numbers were fairly impressive and Zenvo may have figured it out as far as efficiency is concerned. It also looks cool.

    Variable Vein/Geometry Turbo. Been around quite awhile. Mainly used on diesels but has been used in some cars.

    ^^ My aunt and uncle's old POS Dodge Daytona has a Variable Geometry Turbo. Interesting addition to an otherwise terrible car.

    Yup! One of the first to get them! Sadly the technology wasn't there yet to support it.

    One of my best friends in high school was from a wealthy family, and they gave her a Chrysler Laser to drive, an automatic. For some reason it never impressed me.

    Porsche is big on 'em I believe.

    Side note: We have a variable geometry turbo technically - the waste gate. Some diesels and industrial turbos don't even have a waste gate due to being sized for a narrow operating range.

    the Daytona was the more of a wedgy looking car. The Eagle Talon was based on the Mitsubishi Eclipse...some with AWD and turbo'd. But...DSM...yes they were fun to drive, but asploded religiously.
