THE SINCEREST FORM OF FLATTERY?

TMG sounds a little too much like those German cars, I wonder who this is targeted at ?Click

So a turbocharged version of the IS-F motor can rev to 9k? Thinks not!

Much blasphemy ensued, and some menace, which I stopped by dismounting and opening the carriage door, and intimating an intention of mending the road with his immediate remains, if he did not hold his tongue. He held it.

Why not?

The only c-word I'm allowed to use is cockwomble :(

Because they would need to be galactic in size and intercooled to death to feed a 5l V8 at 9k without being hot air guns, wouldn't they?

Nah, something like a pair TD05-16G would flow enough air for the quoted power. Boost would tail off towards the top of the rev range anyway. A more modern twin-scroll, variable vane jobbie of equivalent size would be very driveable.

The LFA V10 revs to 9k, not the V8 (which is what that sounded like) :p ;).

Exactly - I was belming at whoever wrote that article as the leaked spec sheet clearly mentions 9k rpm.
