    The article link says: “With an astronomic compression ratio of 13.5:1 and a specific output of 115.8 hp/liter”
    93 octane works in a 13.5:1 compression ratio?

    1) @Jojo: Yes, with modern electronic ignition systems, ‘ping’ sensors and millisecond timing adjustments allow you to run 13.5:1 on 93 octane . Of course, I suspect you could wring another 10-20-30 hp from that power plant by using high-test aviation fuel.

    2) Another Italian super car made for people between 5’2″ and 5’8″? Gimme something that someone 6’4″ can drive!
