OTOH, with 240hp, it looks like this will finally make it on American shores - 
witness the 245hp M3, 250hp Volvo 850R, and possible 250hp versions of the 
Saab 900 Turbo and Ford Contour. Given how conservatively the 1.8T is run, I 
won't be surprised if the run the V6 with very conservative turbo boost level 
on this one. 
Besides, if they actually produce a 280hp car, I doubt it'll be shipped 
stateside (just look at the M3).
