Nope, only the V8 got a Torsen rear diff ... the 200q has a Torsen center
diff and a lockable rear diff.

This has been EXACTLY my experience with the Torsen when driven on pavement
and the reason why I was so surprised by the way the car handled.  I really
need to investigate this further ... I think I'll take the Ur-Q up there to
see how the open v. locked center diff compare.
