By the time this second-generation car arrived in 2008, it also sported a 480-bhp Renault-badged Nissan V6 beneath its Dallara-built carbon-fiber monocoque, while a series of aerodynamic tweaks during the subsequent three years succeeded in improving its performance still further, reducing drag and increasing downforce.
Introduced in 1931, the Bugatti Type 51 was handed the daunting task of replicating the competitive successes of its pre-eminent predecessor, the prolific Type 35 , on which it was modeled. The Type 35 features a rwd setup, 160hp pushing the car to a maximum speed of 143 mph.
As you would expect from an Audi “S” model, the S5 has been endowed at Ingolstadt with everything in the Volkswagen-owned brand’s armory, including a sporty suspension, subtly-aggressive rear and front fascias, quad tailpipes, performance wheels and brakes, a six-speed transmission and, of course, the marque’s renowned “quattro” all-wheel drive system.
Out went the GT1 racer’s steel skeleton and carbon brakes, and in came the C6 ZR1 ‘s hydroformed aluminum frame and body styling, an aerodynamic package that included a smaller front splitter and rear wing, and a race-prepared 485-bhp 5.5-liter GM V8 that shared its architecture with the Corvette C6 Z06’s LS7 powerplant.
The RZ-S, first seen on the roads in 1995, sported a 3.0-liter sequential twin-turbo straight-six capable of 320 bhp and a 0-60 mph time of less than five seconds, although the domestic version (by 2002, all Supra exports had ceased) was limited to 276 bhp.
Under the hood, its upgraded engine featured a new turbocharger compressor that resulted in a power output of 270 bhp—an 18 bhp improvement on that of the Evo II, but still 6 below the maximum allowed for Japanese-spec cars at the time.
