    350 BHP claim with an R5 car doesn't add much credibility.

    Well, either did they put the real figures, but as far as I know a R5 should be around the 300bhp margin (New cars)

    Car was running a bigger restrictor at National level in the UK so maybe referring more to the output and got left in the brochure. Certainly would explain its pace against 1.6 WRC Fiestas over the last couple of seasons..

    Yes but the picture and the website advertises R5 and 350 BHP for real R5 is bullshit.

    No-one in the market to buy/hire one will take any notice of that 'claim'.

    I almost prefer that to the more common 275/280 figures the manufacturers publicise. Everybody loves an optimist...!

    Maybe the 350bhp is a maximum depending on the state of tune that is required/allowed.
