welps i might be read old stuff but hey...
The bright yellow IS 300 was outfitted with race and safety modifications to handle the demands of pacing Champ Car races. The pace car features a five-speed manual transmission and a Toyota Racing Development (TRD) supercharger, which adds 50 horses for a total of 265 horsepower.

I think another 50 hp would be more than enough...especially since it could be had with a manual tranny. That's more power than the current M3 and S4. If the car still sells for $35K with the supercharger, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

That supercharged pace car was a special "one-off" project. I am sure the production supercharger will be very different and not available for purchase for some time now.

Pace cars / Race cars doesn't have to worry about emissions and noise like street cars do.
