Chevy SuperUte outguns 911 GTS

Like it or not, this El Camino thingy is wicked!

From Top Gear: http://www.topgear.com/uk/photos/che...1-09?imageNo=0


We get a lot of press releases telling us Exciting News about reliable manufacturers, strategic partnerships and expensive toll crossings. Many of these, because of multifaceted reasons revolving largely around 'boredom', are ignored. This one, however, shoved its supercharged nose right into our inbox and demanded we open it.
That, right there, above these words, is the 'SuperUte'. Seriously, it's a Chevy Ute SS modified by a South African company called LupiniPower, who has deemed it necessary to bump the Chevy's power up to 535bhp and 590 torques. The most obvious, common-denominator headline-grabbing result is a 0-62mph time of 4.5 seconds thanks to something called a TractionBar. It's 0.1s quicker than a Porsche 911 Carrera GTS, a distance only visible and relevant in the minutae of a pub petrolhead's mind. Though it's been ten minutes, so expect another slightly more powerful 911 variant to come along shortly...

Seems like it should be quicker than that, unless its without rollout. If so, 4.5s to 62 would seem about right.
