I think 4.5 may be a bit off, but my 182 cup is good for 0-60 in 6.2 seconds (and this is backed up by Autocars test figures). If like he says, he has fitted a supercharger, then surely it's not beyond the realms of possibility. Either way, for the £11,800 I paid for mine brand new, the 182 is a serious peice of kit for the money.

I drove a standard 182 (and loved it), but the limitation on acceleration, like most FWD cars, is traction not power! I reckon even if it was 300 bhp (which it isn't), the 0-60 time would be high 5's at best.
Nobody as far as I know offers a s/c conversion for the 182. It's too new. The review is fake.

This somehow doesn't seem right? I own a Clio 182, and where exactly is the room to fit a supercharger? The engine is shoe horned as it is, and I doubt airflow would be sufficient.
If this is true, then I would imagine the torque steer to be brutal!!!

16 years ago when I was in 4th Yr at secondary school, a lad tried to convince me that his dad had fitted a Jag engine to a Lada Riva - and didn't need a hoist coz he was so strong that he didn't need one. To the author of this review - was that yer dad pikie?

Supercharger wouldn't take 2secs of time, also chassis can just about handle 182 so would bend over such power.

I agree with the above. 180BHP is all the cup can put down really, if you want to go faster get a decent set of dampers and take the back seats out.

"Alpine top of the range, including 1 mono class D for the Type X sub, and 1 4way amp."
There goes 2 or 3 seconds of the time. Anyway I have got a sub and they're not light.
Flaming hell, an F1 car 0 to 60 is about 3 seconds to 60 or around there; what makes you think your Cup can do the times you said.
