    Is it just a rumour - RXP-R

    I dont wish to perpetuate a rumour but someone recently mentioned that Riva is building 200 limited edition RXP-R's with 300HP. Can anyone confirm this??? I think if it were true they would have no problem in selling them!

    I believe their stage III kit is advertised at 295 hp so advertising 300 hp would be nothing special. A real 300 hp is moderately impressive, but still something someone could throw together by bolting on parts and/or bringing it to a local shop for a couple hundred in labor. Don't get me wrong, I like RIVA and all, but if this rumor is true then my advice to them would be stick with what they're doing and continue working hard at developing parts/contributing to the sport.

    Look at the rediclious markups dealers get on cars for calling it a special name and a few different badges. You assume way too much intelligence on the average buyer. Sadly, this level is mostly inversly proportional to the amount of disposable income too. ie. There are alot of people that just say give me the "best" "Fastest" whatever, I don't want to deal with it, as I have more money than time or brains.

    I think it would go over huge.
