The car, just like the one we reviewed, was equipped only with the necessary safety equipment and navigation gear needed to run in the event, leaving its 2.0-liter, 270-horsepower turbo four untouched.
Driver Bill Rietow and navigator John Townsend captured second place in their class, where their goal was to average as close to 135mph over the set 90-mile distance without going over that class breakout speed. The pair was just 0.4 seconds off their target time of 40 minutes. The event was held on a two-lane stretch of Nevada's State Highway 318.
The same pair won the 120mph class last fall.
