Simple, crude, tacky, unsophisticated, mindless, not "green"

(and this car has not even been tuned yet at a paltry 500HP).

What is it about "Turbo" and (American) V-8 power that is so wicked, crazy, irrational, but I MUST HAVE ONE?????

I see a long trail of broken drive trains and incinerated head gaskets in my future...

I think if I wanted an insane Mustang I might get one of these. 550 HP right out of the box, and they make very pleasant noises..
