hey shantanu, what i can recollect is that the car in the 3rd pic was used in the movie. am not able to recognise the first 2 pics properly. but that is one flashy car, and the fact that with all that flash going for it, it was no gordon. only put out 125 bhp at the crank. what a hype that movie was.

Are you talking about the car used in the movie or the power of a stock Eclipse in general?

Coz if the car used i the movie had 125 bhp at the crank, then that's real sad. And there's no way that car could have done the things they showed in the movie.

On the whole, that movie did have a few un-real scenes. But "Torque" beat em all!!! Superbikes jumping on trains, my A**.

For those who may be interested, this Eclipse is currently for sale. Check out the Ebay link.

Seems to have a lot more than 125bhp.

Yes, but thats only half the story. The eclipse could be had in two versions...turbo and non-turbo. THe non-turbo one in the states is rated at 140 odd BHP
