"The Myth" of Panama's 900 HP Evo - /TUNED
It's the rainy season in Panama, and that means if we want to go fast, we're gonna need some AWD performance. Fortunately, we've got the keys to Race Lab's 900 HP Mitsubishi Evolution 7. Now if we can just find somewhere to run it....
The 900 HP Heffner Twin Turbo Lamborghini LP-560 -- /TUNED

But what happens when you double the BRZ's horsepower and triple it's torque? We find out.
