Once again there was a pause in Turbo production while the normally aspirated models were launched, but as it ever it proved worth the wait. Slightly flared wheelarches cover 10in and 8in wide rims that have hollow spokes to reduce unsprung weight, and a large rear spoiler confirms the car’s identity. As the ‘4’ in the name suggests, this Turbo has four-wheel-drive, which means it can make the most of the 408bhp generated with the aid of twin turbochargers. The
six-speed gearbox is a beefed-up version of that in the Carrera 4. Only a coupé version is offered.
