Glad to see the factory showing all the interest. Some of the specs seem to be off though. For example "Brakes & Suspension: RS 6 standard braking system with full floating cast iron rotors."
I think they switched to an Alcon system early last year because the "standard braking system just couldn't cut it. Also the horsepower and especially the torque numbers that they publish seem quite low for a car that can turn a 0-60 time in 2.7 secs. "Output: 525 hp

Torque: 376.15 lb/ft (510 Nm)". The lighter weight will surely help but....

Also, they mention that Champion switched to a wider tire this year which is true (305 series) but they give the wheel size the same as they used last year (18 x 8.5). Surely they're not trying to put 305 series Toyo RA1's on 8.5" rims!
