The MK5 is reported to pull 2G’s on the skidpad, due in part to Formula 1 inspired pushrod suspension geometry, mid-engine placement and large performance rubbers on all four corners
The MK5's mid-mounted 4-cylinder engine develops 250 hp, delivering a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 240 km/h (150 mph)
Bodywork comprised of carbon fiber composites gives the MK5 an overall weight of 1,200 lbs (545 kg) and a power-to-weight ratio of 460 bhp per tonne
