Price range on s80s are from $35k to $48k... I can't believe they'd sell you one for $30k though...

The S60R is about $37k. I've heard that the evolve will be around $60k.

Strip off the body kit and that awful mesh and keep the 400-500hp, badass brakes, wheels and suspension.

hot damn... sex on wheels would be an understatement.


I have only one problem, it is the color blue.
The blue look soooo.... so E36 M3; yet also have a hint of the previous Civic SI blue and even as one of you guys described, the Skyline R34 blue minus a couple layer of gloss.

I don't know, but I think red would look a whole lot better..



Holy ShiietZ! DUAL Brake Calipers????
