Doesn't matter if its 375kw if its ugly.
Cars with a certain beauty sell even if they're built without so much as a power band.

For the standard 6 you are probably looking at around 165kw.
For the Turbo XR6 you are probably looking at the 200kw mark.
For the standard V8 probably around 220kw
For the T's - who knows, possibly around 250 - 275kw
I wasnt far wrong with those power figures...
