      well 2019 we have all kinds of tricks to beat turbo lag but the newest is in the koensegg jenko it uses air tanks that are pumped up as the car moves and the ecu injects a huge burst of air into the turbo (not sure exactlly where I asssume the turbine but they could have extended the shaft and gave it its own wheel for the air to spin) and strategic points so the jenko is 1600hp with monster turbos and zero lag because of this.As soon as that throttle is touched and depending on how much throttle is pushed determines how much of a burst of air goes to the turbo.This air injecting into the turbo will be great.

      At 30 mph or 48 kph in top gear my car is almost at idle rpm of course it won't pull no turbo car will either. When you want to drive fast at what point would you even drop down to that low rpm you'd have to be very bad at anticipating shift points if you do that

      Oh man, all the Forza bros and magazine racers in this comment section, lol.

      Clarkson is simply pointing out that this car is terrible in any real world sense. Yes, when flogged on a track it's fast, but it's on basically cheater tires that would be trash in no time, would be miserable to drive in traffic due to the clutch and narrow powerband, requires regular heavy maintenance just to keep it running, etc. It's a factory tuner grenade that would only be fun on the track, so what's the point in getting it as a daily driver?

      Get a more sensible daily driver, perhaps even one of the lower HP EVO variants, then get an actual track car for track driving that doesn't have any compromises like crumple zones, air bags, back seats, climate control, etc. Hell, IMO get a race kart and have something that goes 0-60 in 3 seconds and corners over 2.5G and can be towed on a $300 trailer or thrown in the back of a pickup truck and can be driven on karting tracks that are cheaper and more accessible and honestly more intense to drive because the corners come at you faster.

      Simply too many car bros that clearly have little to no real world track/race experience or experience driving these sorts of cars that think everything is about lap times and all cars are as easy to live with as the next.
